We are proud to host
the 1st Annual Virtual Symposium on Prenatal-onset Group B Strep Disease (POGBSD)
October 15 - 25, 2018
GBS researchers and health professionals are presenting on various aspects of GBS disease pertaining to GBS infection during pregnancy. Prenatal-onset group B strep disease includes GBS-caused stillbirths and miscarriages and should possibly include GBS infections caused before early-onset prevention strategies would normally be implemented.
The conference is currently in full swing! Miss a day? No worries! All past presentations can be viewed in our presentation gallery.
Due to the virtual nature of the symposium, all you need to attend is an internet-enabled computer or mobile device. Presentations will be in video and poster format to allow for ease of viewing across multiple time zones. As a registered attendee, you will be able to post questions and comments on each presentation to facilitate an ongoing dialogue with the presenter and other attendees. Presentations are grouped together by topic and will be uploaded daily throughout the symposium. Click HERE for our presentation schedule.
Registration is complimentary. Upon completion of registration, a link and password to access the symposium will be emailed to you. CME credit will be available for physicians and midwives.
We welcome everyone with an interest in perinatal health, as your contribution is valued. Parents and family members of babies harmed by GBS are encouraged to attend and add to the discussion.
The 1st Annual Symposium on Prenatal-onset GBS Disease is a collaborative partnership between Group B Strep International and Star Legacy Foundation, both nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations working towards more babies being born healthy and staying healthy.
