Tourism Vancouver would like to celebrate the success of 2017 International Urogynecological Association Annual Meeting that took place from June 20 to 24. This meeting was chaired by local host, Dr. Geoffrey Cundiff.

Dr. Cundiff is a professor and Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of British Columbia and also the Regional Head of Obstetrics & Gynaecology for Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. Together, he and his colleagues welcomed over 1000 delegates to discuss how the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) is dedicated to global advancement of urogynecological knowledge and patient care through education and the promotion of basic and clinical research on disorders of the female pelvic floor.

Dr. Cundiff’s research interests include epidemiology of pelvic floor disorders, anatomy, education, and many more. He works to develop and validate patient-based outcomes and continues his research on surgical and non-surgical treatments relating to his field of studies. We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the local organizing committee for the success of 2017 IUGA in Vancouver.
