Status: Clinical workgroup partners from across the country are convening in Arlington Virginia December 13-14, 2016 to collectively review the strategies and methods that have allowed them to advance preconception measures and actions in their setting as well as to discuss and problem solve around ongoing challenges. A report from that meeting along with other products will be made available here by February 2017.
