Planning is underway for the 2013 Annual International Women’s and Children’s Health and Gender Working Group (InWomen’s) Conference. The meeting is held in conjunction with the NIDA International Forum and the College on Problems of Drug Dependence Annual Scientific Meeting. The 2013 conference will be on Friday, June 14, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel, San Diego, California. Steffanie Strathdee, Ph.D., associate dean of Global Health Sciences, Harold Simon Professor, and chief of the Division of Global Public Health in the University of California San Diego School of Medicine Department of Medicine, will be the plenary speaker. A poster session will promote more networking. Tax-deductible donations are being accepted at to support a few merit- and needs-based travel awards for young investigators whose abstracts are accepted for the poster session. Details about submitting poster abstracts and applying for the travel awards will be announced in early 2013. InWomen’s is a NIDA International Program Working Group.
