Thank you to Team Alabama for inviting me to talk about the Every Woman Southeast Coalition at their annual Perinatal Symposium in Birmingham last week. While thunderstorms kept me in the Charlotte, NC airport longer than I liked, the weather in Alabama was beautiful! At the Symposium, I was honored to follow a fantastic presentation from Rose Horton, President-Elect of AWOHNN. The presentation was the first I’ve given about EWSE since we decided to push our boundaries and commit to addressing health inequities and the social determinants of health. I think it went over pretty well. The slides are posted on our website.
I also got a glimpse at Albama’s fantastic preconception health campaign called GALS – Get a Healthy Life. Here is a link for more information http//www.adph.org/familyplanning. Seriously – a public education campaign that features shoes – fun and great information.
