The Guttmacher Center for Population Research Innovation and Dissemination and the Guttmacher Institute will be exhibiting at the Population Association of America (PAA) Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL from April 26 to 29, 2017. You can find us at Booth #311 in the Exhibit Hall. Stop by to meet Center Affiliates and Guttmacher experts and to learn more about the Center and its public-use datasets. A selection of recent publications from the Institute will also be on display and available in electronic copy.

In addition to several presentations planned for PAA, Guttmacher experts will also be presenting at the 2017 Psychosocial Workshop, which will be held at the Hilton Chicago on Tuesday, April 25 and Wednesday, April 26. This workshop is co-chaired by Guttmacher experts Laura Lindberg and Isaac Maddow-Zimet. The workshop brings together psychological and social scientists and related health professionals in a small–meeting setting to discuss various topics including abortion, women’s health and sexuality.
