The 2012 Annual International Women’s and Children’s Health and Gender Working Group (InWomen’s) Conference, which will focus on global issues in the context for and treatment of substance abuse by women, also will promote research on the topic with poster logos and T-shirts.

Members of InWomen have agreed to promote their satellite meeting at the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) by adding the group’s logo to posters they present at the NIDA International Forum and CPDD. The logos are available online through the InWomen’s resources folder in the NIDA International Virtual Collaboratory. The group also will sell v-neck T-shirts promoting the InWomen’s group during their meeting. Shirts will cost $12 and be available in adult sizes.

Featured speakers at the meeting will include Cora Lee Wetherington, Ph.D., coordinator of the NIDA Women and Sex/Gender Research Program, and participants in international projects supported by NIDA, including Trecia Wouldes, Ph.D., M.A., New Zealand, who will discuss research focusing on children born to addicted mothers; Irma Kirtadze, M.D., Republic of Georgia, who will report on drug use by women in her country; and Olga V. Toussova, Ph.D., Russia, who will present research about HIV risks among women in Russia.

The InWomen’s conference is held in conjunction with the NIDA International Forum and the 74th Annual CPDD Scientific Meeting, and cosponsored by the NIDA International Program, CPDD, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health, RTI International, and Danya International.
