Thanks to everyone who came out for our annual Welcome Dinner. Our keynote speaker, Melissa L. Gilliam, MD, MPH, spoke about her interesting journey to her current profession in pediatric and adolescent gynecology as well as some of the work that she is currently doing. Dr. Gilliam is the Chief of the Section of Family Planning and Contraceptive Research and the Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Innovation in Sexual and Reproductive Health (Ci3).  Her practice is geared towards children, teens, and young women with complex gynecological problems and her research focuses on contraception, family planning, youth development, and sexually transmitted infections. She was one of the cofounders of Ci3 and helped launch it last year.
