Seattle Gynecologic Society’s Dinner Lecture Series
Please join us for our bi-monthly dinner lecture series brought to you by the Seattle GYN Society. This is a wonderful time to sit down with colleagues over a delicious dinner and socialize. Following the meal there is a 60 minute educational presentation by a medical expert on important gynecological issues, followed by a lively Question & Answer session. To join us, please RSVP below, as space is limited. The dinner lecture series is complimentary to all current, paid SGS members.
For Life Members there is a $50 charge. This discounted fee is in recognition of your years of membership and support. You pay Kim Conn at the door, but please pre-register for the evening.
Non-members there is a $75 fee to cover the dinner and lecture for one visit. We limit this option to a one time visit so that interested doctors can come and experience the SGS dinner lecture event with us, and will hopefully be encouraged to join our SGS family.
SGS 2020 Dinner Lecture Series Speakers
RESCHEDULED TO JULY 15, 2020
SGS is postponing the March Dinner Lecture to Wed. July 15, 2020 at the Washington Athletic Center
Wed. July 15, 2020
Speaker: Dr. Marisa Dahlman
Topic: Chronic Pelvic Pain: Thinking outside the box
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Noble Room (floor 1)
Dr. Dahlman | Associate Program Director for Fellowship in Minimally Invasive GYN | Virginia Mason Medical Center
Chronic pelvic pain is one of the most common reasons women go to see the gynecologist, and it can be one of the most frustrating complaints we encounter in the office. Since chronic pain is usually multifactorial, a multisystem approach is essential for both initial diagnosis and long-term management. We will discuss initial evaluation, the role of surgery, and options for nonsurgical management in the patient with chronic pelvic pain.
Wed. May 13, 2020 – Bellevue Club
Speaker: Dr. Lisa Callegari
Topic: A Person-Centered Approach to Contraceptive Counseling: Why and How to Do It
6:00 – 8:00 PM
Lisa Callegari MD | Adjunct Assoc. Professor, Health Services | Associate Professor OB GYN | VA Puget Sound Health Care System
Emerging data indicate that common contraceptive counseling practices, such as using a LARC-first approach, can result in perceived coercion and mistrust of providers by patients. Patients and providers may prioritize different features of contraceptive methods, and marginalized populations in particular may experience perceived pressure to use LARC as a threat to reproductive autonomy. A patient-centered approach to contraceptive counseling can address these concerns by starting with a discussion of individuals’ reproductive goals and by helping individuals align their preferences and values with their contraceptive decisions.
