Health Professionals

Health professionals in small group setting

Your role as clinician, health educator or community health worker is critical in helping to integrate preconception care into the delivery of health care to all women of reproductive age. Studies consistently show that advice provided by a health care provider, whether about folic acid or smoking cessation, has a more powerful effect on the consumer than radio or TV ads or even advice from friends. You make a huge impact in helping build healthy and resilient communities by educating patients, communities, friends and family members on preconception health.
