Women’s Health SIG Presentations

In keeping with integrating women’s mental health issues with consultation-liaison psychiatry, Women’s Health SIG members regularly present preconference courses, workshops and symposia, and oral papers and posters at each ACLP annual meeting.

Pre-Conference Courses at ACLP Annual Meetings

Every year since 2012, SIG member Christina Wichman, DO, FAPM, has presented a “Women’s Health” section of the annual full-day Updates in Psychosomatic Medicine pre-conference course.

At the Academy’s 2017 Annual Meeting, one of the half-day skills preconference courses was From Preconception to Postpartum: Perinatal Basics for the General Consultation Psychiatrist. This course was presented by SIG members Priya Gopalan, MD; Nehama Dresner, MD, FAPM, FAPA, Director, Wellsprings Health Associates, Chicago, IL; Madeleine Becker, MD, FAPM; Christina Wichman, DO, FAPM; and Leena Mittal, MD, FAPM.
