THE 15th Annual Science Reporters Conference of the American Medical Association (AMA), held in San Francisco, Calif, focused in large part on women's health issues. One morning of the 3-day conference was devoted to presentations that were simulcast via satellite to news reporters in New York, NY.

Two of the 3 presentations concerned what patients need to know about birth control options; the third addressed strategies that can help reduce health problems and costs associated with premature birth.

Before the investigators spoke, Timothy T. Flaherty, MD, a member of the AMA's Board of Trustees, introduced the Association's new consumer book, American Medical Association Complete Guide to Women's Health (New York, NY: Random House Inc; 1996), edited by Ramona I. Slupik, MD. More than 30 specialists contributed to making the guide the most thorough and up-to-date source of information on health concerns of women of all ages, Flaherty said.
