PTBi Annual Symposium

The Preterm Birth Initiative hosts an annual prematurity symposium, uniting colleagues from all six of our California and East Africa geographies, showcasing PTBi's work over that year, presenting the latest prematurity research, and facilitating the exchange of ideas amongst investigators and stakeholders within the PTBi network. The location alternates each year between one of PTBi's California or East Africa locations. 

The program of events will change each year, but generally include a keynote, presentations, breakout sessions and an opportunity to network with health professionals, scientists and policy experts. 

Save the Date: We’re pleased to announce the 2017 Annual PTBi Prematurity Symposium, which will convene on World Prematurity Day, Friday, November 17th, in San Francisco. We’re hard at work planning an exciting, informative, and interactive day and ask that you mark your calendars to save the date. A preliminary agenda and registration will be available in the next few weeks. To stay informed about the upcoming Symposium, please join our mailing list by emailing
