In 2007, the NVA developed the first and only online CME/CE course on vulvodynia for health care providers. In April 2016, an updated version of this tutorial became available. The most current issues of our highly praised newsletter, with expert articles on vulvodynia’s causes and treatments, is available to members online. In the future, articles on treatment and research will be emailed to members. We also distribute patient brochures to your office, free of charge to practitioners in the U.S. (Outside the U.S., we request $15 for extra postage.) Our patient educational booklets are also available for a modest fee, which is discounted for members. If you are an NVA member, you can choose to add your name to our patient referral list.
To foster important research, the NVA awards grants and to encourage junior faculty to pursue an interest in vulvodynia, we offer a $7,500 Career Development Award. Lastly, we keep the medical-scientific community abreast of recent scientific and clinical advances through our biannual Research Update newsletter, which contains abstracts from journals and medical meetings.
