Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why a conference BY and FOR pelvic health?
As our field grows, we need and deserve our own conference! By bringing in dynamic speakers who are leaders in pelvic health the content is more practical and applicable to our actual clinical practice. We want everyone going home inspired to improve their clinical practice and grow our specialty!
Where and when is PelviCon 2023 going to be held?
We're excited to announce we're coming back to Atlanta! It was an amazing host for us last year. It's conveniently located, a transportation hub and a fun city to visit.
The conference will be from September 8th - September 10th, 2023.

You will leave with some amazing connections! We build in deliberate time to meet, laugh, chat and connect at breakfast, Happy Hours and events. You'll leave with new colleagues and friends.
What if I'm new to pelvic health? Or what if I'm a veteran?
We design the conference to resonate with pelvic rehab providers of all experience levels. If you're newer to pelvic health it can be an incredible launch of your career. If you're more seasoned, reinvigorate your enthusiasm and connect with colleagues and friends. Here's what PelviCon '22 attendees said:

What if I'm not a pelvic rehab provider?
Because the topics are so geared to our specialty, the conference really isn't appropriate for physicians or other practitioners. What we do is unique! If you're wondering if PelviCon is right for you, please let us know.
Are tickets refundable?
As this is an in-person event, tickets are not refundable or transferable.
What's the dress code?
We're pretty casual! The conference room can be a bit chilly, so may want to have a few layers. Bring your favorite pelvic health shirts, earrings, necklaces, or your PelviCon '22 t-shirt!
Are there CEUs?
As of right now, CEUs are not pre-approved for PelviCon. You will get a Certificate of Copletion with your contact hours after the conference. We're looking into CEUs, but can't guarantee them for all participants in 2023.
