Aired on Thursday, April 28th.

(Note: This show originally aired back in January.) On this edition of StudioTulsa on Health, we speak with Mark Edwards, the co-founder of Upstream USA, a newly formed nonprofit that aims to, per its website, "change healthcare so that all women receive the highest quality services and can conveniently access the full range of contraceptive methods, including IUDs and the implant.... Upstream USA's mission is to change contraceptive counseling and care in health centers so that clients have easy access to the best contraceptive methods. When women can plan their pregnancies, they are more likely to achieve other personal goals -- finishing school, finding and keeping a good job, and selecting a life partner for the right reasons." You can learn more about Upstream USA -- and can also access a free, on-demand mp3 stream of our conversation with Mr. Edwards -- at this link.
