The PCHHC Consumer Workgroup leads Show Your Love, the first national preconception consumer resource and campaign.
Show Your Love promotes healthy lifestyle choices, overall wellbeing, and access to quality health information, resources and care. The campaign aims to engage young adults in thinking about their reproductive future and in making simple, proactive health improvements in their daily lives so that they can be their best and achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
Formative research and materials were developed by the CDC, and has since expanded with a new website, www.showyourlovetoday.com; social media campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; the Diversification Grantee program; Show Your Love Ambassador program; Show Your Love mobile app, etc.
Our goal is to UNIFY, COLLABORATE & ELEVATE: our partner’s work, community voices, the latest tools, research, resources, campaigns, events. Working to bust silos and raise the bar for industry (and cross-sector) collaboration, our workgroup meets regularly to share updates, best practices, and strategies to improve care in the U.S. Here’s a look at some of our partners.

Showing Love in the Community
SYL Community Diversification Partners
PCHHC funded 14 organizations nationwide to expand and diversify Show Your Love preconception messages and educational materials for target populations. These different community groups have helped us expand our library of resources, including videos, public service announcements, posters, digital ads, doctor dialogue toolkit, healthy habits checklists, and more. Read about these partners and their products here: showyourlovetoday.com.

SYL Community Ambassadors
As part of the Show Your Love social media campaign, PCHHC recruits Show Your Love Ambassadors: young adults who will help model and promote healthy behaviors and life choices online and in their communities.
Ambassadors will receive Show Your Love branded gear for doing what they are already doing – being healthy, posting online & encouraging their peers to make healthy choices too. Individuals or entire groups can get involved. PCHHC gives Ambassadors and preconception health programs national exposure with our (and our partner’s) digital channels and events. We also invite Ambassadors to join our monthly workgroups calls, where they can connect with industry leaders and organizations across the country (great resume builder and networking opportunity!).
