WHO: Patients, Health Practitioners from Bethlehem, PA & New York, NY

WHAT: Educational Retreat for Female Patients with Chronic Pelvic Pain

WHEN: April 27-28, 2013

WHERE: Hotel Bethlehem, 437 Main Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018


This retreat is created for female chronic pelvic pain patients with complex symptoms involving one or more of the following: Interstitial Cystitis (IC), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Vulvodynia, Vestibulitis, Lichen Sclerosis, Pudendal Neuralgia, Endometriosis, and other pelvic, genital, and sexual pain disorders.


Heading the organization of this retreat, Alexandra T. Milspaw, M.Ed., LPC states, “Our mission is to expand knowledge and care to the underserved population of female patients with chronic pelvic pain. We seek to create an atmosphere where patients can feel safe to be their authentic selves. We listen. We care. We believe. This will be a weekend filled with compassion for the self, and forgiveness for others who do not understand the plight of chronic pelvic pain.”


Dr. Echenberg remarks, “My passion for integrated care in women’s health continues with the creation of this multidisciplinary regional approach to the clinical care, education, and research associated with pain in women. We hope that our retreat will contribute to ‘connecting the dots’ for individuals and the community at large.”

Thank you to everyone who helped to put together this conference and who will be presenting information, giving massages, etc. The more people know about pelvic pain the less forbidden it will be to talk about. The more people talk about pelvic pain the more help will become available.

I am certain everyone who attends will benefit.
