IGMA 2023 Virtual Conference ~ Pushing Boundaries; Expanding Empowerment Beyond the Well Patient Here, There and Everywhere - December 1, 2 and 3
IGMA’s highly anticipated event is almost here! We have three full days of content! Our presentations are from around the globe… we have speakers from Sierra Leone, Sweden, Brazil, Rwanda, the UK and Canada as well as from all across the United States. Each of the presentations speak to the expansion of GTA/MUTA methodology beyond the well patient, and the need for this kind of medical student training to create safer, better, and more empowering health care. We have several of the Pioneers coming back this year to present on self pelvic training as the earliest beginnings of the methodology. And, we have presentations on Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner trainings that provide much needed information on pediatric assault, as well as comprehensive training for SANE that includes law enforcement. We have two presentations on health care for transgender people and inclusion of transgender training in simulated practice. Our international presenters will speak to the challenges and successes of GTA/MUTA programs abroad and the need for improved health care with models such as this in areas of Africa that do not have acceptable health care for its citizens. Other presentations include one on pelvic pain, cultural challenges for GTAs in restrictive communities, energy medicine, and a featured presenter from Rwanda who is helping empower young women across her country to know and understand their bodies and the need for empowerment, and much, much more!

Remember this is YOUR organization. IGMA is the ONLY organization dedicated to GTA MUTA methodology and your help is needed. Meetings are once a month. The conference, membership, social media and SoBP committees are looking for members to assist. The current tasks are monumental for just two or three people. If you are interested in trans health, Erik Simon, the trans health committee Chair is conducting innovative work in the field. IGMA also needs people skilled in statistics to assist with scholarly research; people skilled in marketing and fundraising. If you are talented in these areas or have a passion of your own, please consider offering an hour out of your busy schedule each month to make magic happen within this organization, and please consider joining the organization.
