The EC Jamboree
The EC Jamboree is the annual meeting of the American Society for Emergency Contraception. This dynamic, interactive meeting brings together service providers, clinicians, researchers, advocates and manufacturers who share the goal of expanding access to emergency contraception.
Each year at our annual meeting, ASEC awards outstanding individuals and organizations whose work has contributed substantially to our knowledge of and access to emergency contraception, through research, policy advocacy, and innovative service delivery models.
The EC Jamboree is a conference not to be missed. Everything is always so thoughtfully planned – every panel is interesting, relevant, thought-provoking, and informative, and there is always a carefully crafted balance between international and domestic, between research and policy, and between continuing issues and emergent ones. I always get so much out of it – new clinical insights, new contacts, new ideas for projects, new partners.

The EC Jamboree is wonderful! It provides a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from the United States and other countries and to learn about fascinating subjects, projects, and research. I have attended two EC Jamborees and can say without hesitation that it was truly a privilege to associate with so many intelligent and friendly people.

The EC Jamboree has outstanding attributes beyond its great name. It is a fabulous exchange between researchers, clinicians, policy experts, and advocates from many different countries that not only highlights recent important progress in the field of EC it also creates a blueprint for future work in this area.

I love the Jamboree! It’s is an energetic gathering of clinicians and researchers interested in preventing unintended pregnancy and expanding women’s options. It provides a chance to hear about the latest research findings and clinical practices around EC and to catch up with colleagues interested in contraceptive provision from across the nation. It is also the reproductive health meeting with the best name!
