Long acting reversible contraception (LARC) has been shown to be an effective pregnancy prevention strategy for women’s health in other communities. Could greater LARC utilization lead to better health outcomes for women and children in Milwaukee?
Join health practitioners and diverse stakeholders in women and children’s health to further our collective understanding of the science, learn about successful models of LARC implementation in other communities, and explore the best strategies for Milwaukee.
