This year join us virtually to hear the latest developments, innovations, and research in the area of RRM (Restorative Reproductive Medicine). The morning will consist of a formal conference program delivered by lead RRM experts and abstract presenters. After lunch we will open up multiple breakout sessions (small virtual group rooms) to provide a friendly platform for interaction between experts in RRM, those passionate about RRM, and those just learning or new to this approach.
While we can’t physically meet this year, we can still create dedicated scientific networking environments, as well as enhance and support knowledge and clinical practice in the field of RRM.

Breakout Sessions & Afternoon Networking
Following the formal conference program we will open up multiple virtual rooms, acting as informal conference breakout sessions that include:
- Case discussions
- Use of botanicals in RRM
- Research brainstorming/collaboration
- FABM educators networking
- Incorporating RRM into medical education
We hope virtual face-to-face interactions can still serve to support, connect and build the RRM community.
