That's right. A concept called "preconception health," meaning health before pregnancy (conception) is at the heart of this issue.
Peer Preconception Educators are central to our goal of educating all communities in California about the importance of preconception health. We teach college students like you about preconception health, train you to start a campus chapter if there isn't already one at your school, connect you to community partners with whom you can collaborate on projects, and provide general support. Best of all, you can get credit for your work which will help you when you apply for jobs!
