Staying Healthy and Well - Fall 2020
Looking Back and Looking Forward
In September, we wrapped up the third year of our Preconception CoIIN Project. Thank you to the wonderful teams from California, Delaware, Oklahoma, and North Carolina, who worked so hard to advance our project goals.

Our biggest success has been the creation of tools that are being used in practice to help women get what they need from health care visits. All of the teams embraced human-centered design as a way to move towards the larger goal of "humans redesigning systems!"
We have provided technical assistance to teams and clinicians on a wide variety of topics, including community engagement, contraceptive updates, policy, and wellness resources. We developed a new Women’s Health Practice Bulletin, relaunched (website in Spanish coming soon) and tried graphic facilitation. Due to work interruptions from COVID-19, we have been given an additional year to finish up this project. Looking ahead, we will connect the dots between our work and maternal mortality and morbidity prevention. State teams will be sharing and sustaining their projects, we are designing a new line of consumer materials, and collectively we are upping our game in centering reproductive and sexual health equity and the voices of the people we serve. We have much to celebrate and more work ahead!
