|Did you miss our national webcast Knowing Your Alternatives to Prescribing Contraceptives with Dr. Marguerite Duane?
Fertility is a normal, healthy physiologic state. Women’s hormonal cycles determine the fertile window when a couple will most likely conceive. An understanding of the cycle and recognition of the external signs that determine each phase has led to the development of more environmentally friendly and highly effective forms of family planning. Despite these advances, there is limited information about fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) being taught in medical school and residency and the majority of health professionals are trained to approach fertility as a disease state.
Dr. Marguerite Duane discussed all the options available to physicians when counseling patients on family planning options on our national webcast last week. Her discussion was very interactive with numerous medical professionals and medical students participating. If you missed it you can replay the webcast here.
Generation Z (Zoomers) has generated massive political energy recently by leading nationwide protests. Many are wondering if this civic enthusiasm will lead to a higher voter turnout for young people, and those who have been influenced by their message. With more young Americans becoming eligible to vote, the November presidential election could be impacted. Generation Z is expected to account for 1 out of every 10 votes in the upcoming election. Already, Democrat nominee Joe Biden has a projected 24-point advantage among 18-29 year-olds. However, it’s still unclear what the level of voter turnout for Zoomers will be in 2020.
