Who Should Attend?

The ISA2015 conference presents an unprecedented opportunity for our local community of care providers, researchers and bereaved family organizations to connect and dialogue with members of the global community. Join us to hear from both local and international healthcare professionals as they share how their research is advancing towards reducing preventable stillbirths and improving care for families and healthcare professionals after stillbirth.

We recognize that stillbirth and neonatal death affects individuals and families regardless of race, ethnicity, religion and sexuality. We embrace inclusion and welcome diversity. We respect the self-identification of all families.
