On Friday, March 1, more than 150 healthcare providers, public health professionals, students and advocates came together at the Monona Terrace in Madison for the first-ever Wisconsin Contraceptive Care Summit!

Participants (and presenters) came from 66 cities across six states to learn about the latest evidence-based strategies in contraceptive care and patient-centered contraceptive counseling. 

The event also offered hands-on skills training for clinicians to learn or strengthen insertion skills with interval IUD placement, immediate post-placental IUD placement, and etonogestrel implant (Nexplanon) insertion/removal training. Nearly 100 people took advantage of the hands-on training.

Our sincere thanks to the WI Contraceptive Care Summit planning committee for their tireless work creating and executing this event.
