Breaking News: New Recommendations for Women’s Health To Be Released 11/16/2009

I Just received notifiction from the American College of Ob Gyn that new recommendations for women’s health care will be released on Monday, November 16, at 5 pm EST. The recommendations are under embargo until then.  At that time the college will issue a “response” so sounds like we don’t agree with them!  I’ll post the recommendation as soon as it comes out (or sooner if its leaked) — until then here is the office ACOG email

Office of the President
Gerald F. Joseph, Jr., MD, FACOG
