Adolescent Reproductive Health Care Conference (Milwaukee, WI) - July 11, 2014
Pediatricians in our state have a unique challenge of balancing the reproductive health needs of their patients and their patients’ baseline sexual health knowledge level. The teens may not be getting the information anyplace else, and the pediatricians need to have the most up-to-date knowledge as well as the confidence to discuss reproductive health with their patients and families.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The Medical College of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
