Next ISSM Webinar: Puberty Suppression in Transgender Adolescents
Dear ISSM Members,
Here is your opportunity to present to an international audience! The International Society for Sexual Medicine is launching a new initiative called the “Ask the Experts” program. These virtual sessions will allow attendees to hear from and converse with expert thought and opinion leaders and innovators in the field of sexual medicine and sexual health. Limited registration for these sessions will allow for intimate and informal conversation.
The program will cover all aspects of sexual medicine and health and will include a variety of world-renowned experts providing in-depth insight in their specialty and best practices for sexual medicine specialists.
We are seeking additional proposals for interactive Ask the Expert virtual sessions to fill out our 2021 schedule. If you have one in mind, please submit your proposal by June 15, 2021.
We look forward receiving your proposals!
