ABOUT 


The mission of NASPOG is to promote the study and clinical application of the neurobiologic and psychosocial aspects of women’s health and well-being across the life span.

The Society's aim is broadly defined to include the psychological, psychophysiological, public health, socio-cultural, ethical and other aspects of such functioning and behavior. Membership is comprised of approximately 200 individuals drawn from the fields of obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work, anthropology, and other related disciplines.

The Society was formed in 1970 as an independent body after existing as a special interest group of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) since the early 1960's. The Society is now an independent non-profit association and its goals are outlined below:

      • Member Value: Establish programming, networking and services that solidify NASPOG’s unique value proposition. Achieve and foster a balanced representation of diverse expertise.
      • Sustainability: Ensure a strong, focused, well-managed, and financially sound organization
      • Education and Research: Improve access to education and information focused on the neurobiological and social determinants impacting women’s health across the life span. Disseminate new knowledge, foster collaborations, and provide mentorship to further scientific inquiry.
Biennial Meeting
NASPOG conducts a biennial meeting in even years in February-April (depending on location) and includes abstract presentations, poster sessions, and symposia with invited speakers. The biennial meeting serves as a forum for scientific and clinical discussions. Presenters include nationally and internationally known obstetricians, gynecologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, behavioral scientists, attorneys, nurses, and social workers.

Diversity Statement
NASPOG embraces and derives value from the variety of views and opinions that diverse individuals bring to our professional society. In recognizing the importance of diversity, we must also acknowledge the systemic racism, injustice, and differences in power and privilege that exist in our nation, our systems of care, and in our own organization. As such, we continuously strive to create an environment of inclusion and respect through critical self-examination, and by paying attention to both overt and covert forms of prejudice and exclusion.

NASPOG actively seeks out members from the range of differences in race/ethnicity, culture, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, religion, socioeconomic status, national origin and aging, among others. NASPOG makes concerted efforts to reach out to and engage with individuals representing these characteristics for service on the NASPOG Board, committees, task forces, and activities, knowing that our work to promote the health and well-being of women is greatly enhanced by the consideration of multiple perspectives.
