For those who don't know, AAFCP is the accrediting body that offers FCP's and MC's certification in the work that we do. They are an independent non-profit organization that sets rigorous quality standards for all of the medical professionals and allied health professionals who are members.
I couldn't have been more fortunate to attend this event in this location. Training to become a certified FCP has been a career change for me, fueled not only by my passion for women's health but also my own personal journey and positive experiences with CrMS and NaPro. It was a gift to have the professionals who trained me offer opportunities to meet the cofounders of the method, as well as provide access to meet and network with medical professionals from all over the globe.
Doctors I've provided referrals to were there. FCP's I've collaborated with were there. Each day of the meeting was a unique gift filled with new introductions and new conversations, and each event talk was chock-filled with relevant and emerging research regarding women's health. You can take a look at the ambitious conference agenda here.
There was an event that preceeded the conference as well: the annual meeting of the IIRRM. It was easily my favorite day's worth of talks and I am eager to attend this particular event again in the future. Here's a group photo of all the medical professionals and allied health workers who were in attendance at the pre-conference meeting of the IIRRM (I'm on the far right next to Dr. Stanford and Dr. Tham). photo courtesy of IIRRM.
