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 aim of the Society is to foster scholarly scientific and clinical study of the biopsychosocial aspects of obstetric and gynecologic medicine. Although the primary focus is often on women, this does not preclude the study of men insofar as they are involved with women in couple communications, sexual, reproductive and parenting behavior. The aim is broadly defined to include the psychological, psychophysiological, public health, socio-cultural, ethical and other aspects of such functioning and behavior.

The Society is comprised of approximately 200 members drawn from the fields of obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work, anthropology, and other related disciplines.

The Society was formed in 1971 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
      • Balanced Membership: Achieve and foster a balanced representation of diverse expertise
      • Sustainability: Ensure a strong, focused, well-managed, and financially sound organization
      • Education: Improve access to education and information focused on the neurobiological and social determinants impacting women’s health across the life span
      • Research: Disseminate new knowledge, foster collaborations, and provide mentorship to further scientific inquiry
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.

NASPOG is affiliated with the International Society of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology.
