From genetics to bodywork, if you care for people with implantable devices such as breast implants, our research, education, and support will guide you in learning more about the related health risks.

Save the Date-2022.png

BIHS 2022 is looking to bring together the brightest, most experienced minds to continue the discussion of the health-related issues of breast implant illness.

Once again, our discussion will be practitioner-driven and will share experiences of what works and what has not worked to help people heal from implant-related illness. It will be an open discussion. Our goal is to have an educational platform, including CME's to provide practitioners with guidance to help people with breast implant illness. 

We are calling for Abstracts and Presentations for our upcoming Breast Implant Health Summit in October of 2022.

The deadline for requests is January 4th, 2022. If approved, presentations will need to be in by March 21st.

Please email us for more information.
