Last week, I had the pleasure of being interviewed for a radio program about the different areas where pharmacists provide clinical services. The host of Health Update Radio, Dr. Gerry Graf, is a retired pharmacist himself and was very interested in pharmacist roles with family planning and birth control. The program aired live last Monday, September 5, 2014. The portion of the show where I am interviewed can be found in the video clip below.
We talk about why family planning is important for women of all ages from menarche (when a young woman begins menstruating) to menopause. Some of the topics we discussed include all the different methods of birth control, considerations in women with medical conditions, access and privacy in pharmacies, and contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act and Hobby Lobby decision.
You can access the full program featuring Drs. Steven Atallah and David Ha discussing their roles in trauma care and infectious diseases care on the WS Radio website.
