Webinar Title: Advancing Preconception Health in Communities: Launching the First National Consumer Preconception Health Resource & Campaign


Webinar Detail: May 27 @2 pm EDT
The National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative (PCHHC), a national public-private partnership of over 70 organizations working to promote preconception wellness and life planning, will be launching Show Your Love, the first national consumer preconception resource and social campaign this summer. Show Your Love encourages young adults and their support systems to show love to themselves, their loved ones, and future families by educating themselves about optimal preconception health practices and taking an active role in their health and wellness. The campaign is designed to activate men and women of reproductive age, who do not wish to enter pregnancy, are undecided, or currently planning to become pregnant.

During this webinar, Sarah and Suzanne will share best practices and key learnings from teaming up with organizations nationwide to launch the first national preconception health resource and campaign. They will introduce the Show Your Love Ambassador Program, which will be launching during the formal campaign launch this summer. Webinar attendees are eligible to nominate themselves or others to join the Ambassador Program.
