The 2014 InWomen conference will be from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM on Friday, June 13, 2014 in San Juan, Puerto Rico at the Caribe Hilton. Look for our e-vite and request for poster abstract submissions in early December 2013.

 The conference will have two panel sessions: Panel Session I: Emerging Issues Regarding Addiction to Licit Drugs during Pregnancy and Panel Session II: Global Perspectives on Women and Addiction, in addition to lunch, a poster session, and cultural events.

We are working hard to raise funds so we can offer $1000 travel awards for new investigators whose abstracts have been accepted for the poster session. If you would like to contribute to the tax-deductible travel award fund, please click here: http://tinyurl.com/InWomenDonation
