How Title X Agencies Can Expand Opill Access Office Hours

This event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.

Join the RHNTC for an office hour session on the role Title X agencies play in expanding access both to Opill, the new over-the-counter progesterone-only birth control pill, and to medically accurate information about Opill. This session is open to all Title X staff but may be particularly relevant for those who provide contraceptive counseling.

The hour will begin with a short presentation but most of the session will be dedicated to answering participant questions. Please prepare by looking at the pre-reads/pre-watches below and bringing your Opill questions. 

This office hour is intended for Title X grantee or subrecipient staff. Participants will be approved after registering through Zoom. The session will be limited to 100 registrants.

  • Shannon Bakshian, MBA, MSN, APRN, WHCNP, Associate Medical Director, Planned Parenthood North Central State
  • Meg Sheahan, MSN, CNM, MPH, Senior Clinical Consultant, RHNTC
  • Angie Fellers LeMire, MS, BSN, TTA Provider and Grantee Liaison, RHNTC
