Preconception health services support the health of individuals of reproductive age before conception or between births (interconception) and benefit all individuals of reproductive age, regardless of whether they are planning a pregnancy. During this interactive virtual workshop, experts from the University of North Carolina facilitated a discussion on how preconception health services align with the Title X Program’s emphasis on access, equity, and quality family planning services. The workshop included peer-to-peer discussion via breakout groups and digital whiteboards. Participants learned about RHNTC resources that are designed to help family planning providers review and strengthen the quality of their preconception health services, including the Preconception Health Toolkit.
