The Ready for Life North Carolina, formerly the North Carolina Preconception Health Campaign is a March of Dimes public health education campaign aimed to reduce maternal and infant death with an intense focus on African American communities. This webinar will review the importance of recognizing preconception health education and counseling as a strategy to reduce preterm birth rates and improve birth outcomes.

These tools promote wellness and address health across the life span and have the potential to impact the lives of individuals and families.
Objectives Describe current trends related to pregnancy and birth outcomes in North Carolina. Discuss the potential impact of preconception health education and care on individuals and families. Adopt one new tool or resource related to preconception health into their current practice.
