National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative launches 'Show Your Love'

PCHHC is coordinated by the Center for Maternal and Infant Health and housed within the School of Medicine.

The National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative (PCHHC), a public-private partnership of over 70 organizations working to promote preconception wellness and life planning, launched Show Your Love, the first national consumer preconception web resource and social media campaign, June 14, 2016. Show Your Love encourages young adults to show love to themselves, their loved ones and future families by educating themselves about optimal preconception health practices, available health care resources and tools and practical ways they can take an active role in achieving their health and life goals through daily deliberate decisions.

The new resource center, www.ShowYourLoveToday.com, is a clinically-reviewed hub for overall health improvement. The entire resource features one-click, easy-to-share facts, multimedia and resources that encourage positive daily choices before pregnancy. The site highlights physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health topics, as well as tools to help young adults take strides to achieve educational, financial, family and life goals. The Wellness Visit section includes resources to help consumers better understand how to access health care, what to expect before, during and after a clinic visit, and how to make the most of health provider face-time.
