The Truth about Unintended Pregnancy in Colorado
On Sunday, April 1 the Denver Post ran an important opinion piece from Judith C. Shlay, M.D. and associate director for Denver Public Health, on one of the hottest topics in today’s news, women’s health. As conversations continue to heat up around birth control and other women’s health issues, we’re proud to play a positive role in the conversation here in Colorado. She discusses why this is such an important public health issue — including for the individual and for all of us in the state.
She’s a fan of beforeplay.org — check out this quote:
“We support the launch of a new public education campaign beforeplay.org by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Colorado Initiative to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy. The campaign targets 18- to 29-year-olds in Colorado with age-appropriate information and resources to help these young adults think, talk and act in ways that positively affect their health and help shape their future.”
