Team presents at the American College of Gynecology and Obstetrics Annual Conference

Updated: Aug 15

Our research team went to the American College of Gynecology and Obstetrics (ACOG) annual conference May 19-21, 2023. This year, the conference was in our very own backyard, Baltimore, MD! Our team had four poster presentations, and many of our staff and students were in attendance.

Saumya Sao, BA, research program coordinator with the Coleman Research Group, presented two posters.

The posters shared findings from The Violet Project, a digital health platform and community outreach program designed to increase access to sexual and reproductive healthcare and education among youth.

The abstracts are linked below.

SS Sao, R Wang, JS Coleman. Bridging gaps in access for youth: Youth feedback on a novel sexual and reproductive health digital platform.

SS Sao, R Yu, LH Izadi, R Wang, JS Coleman. Evaluation of a youth-led intervention to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health knowledge, efficacy, and autonomy.

I am so grateful to have met so many amazing researchers and entrepreneurs at ACOG this year! I also got to connect with several individuals and organizations who I hope to connect with to improve The Violet Project. It was an amazing experience to learn more about the latest clinical innovation in OB/GYN and to have the opportunity to discuss our research with others as well. - Saumya Sao

Runzhi Wang, MD, MHS, postdoctoral fellow with the Coleman Research Group, presented two posters.

The posters presented findings from our team's study on knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs towards postpartum HPV vaccination among pregnant women, in collaboration with the Allegheny Health Network.

The abstracts are linked below.

R Wang, SS Sao, LH Izadi, JS Coleman. Medical Mistrust among Pregnant Women during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

R Wang, SS Sao, LH Izadi, JS Coleman. Knowledge and Attitudes Toward Inpatient Postpartum HPV Vaccination Among Pregnant Women.

ACOG ACSM is one of the conferences I anticipate attending each year due to the opportunity it provides for me to stay updated on the lasted trends in the OBGYN field. I was thrilled to have the chance to present two posters showcasing the findings from our postpartum HPV vaccination survey. This allowed me to contribute to the collective knowledge and engage with fellow professionals who share a passion for improving healthcare outcomes for women. - Runzhi Wang

Students Sadie and Maclaine (right) attended too!

We finished off the conference by connecting with alumni and colleagues at an event with the Johns Hopkins GYN/OB Department.

Congratulations, team!
