PRC Researchers Receive Funding to Continue Work on Postpartum Contraception
Posted: September 27, 2013
To further the work of The Texas Policy Evaluation Project (Tx-PEP), Joseph Potter and Kristine Hopkins have been awarded a grant from the Society of Family Planning to include additional follow-up interviews for the Tx-PEP project. This extended follow-up period will help the research team further assess the overall impact of the legislation enacted during the 2011 Texas Legislative Session and its effect on Texas women.
Graduate student Abigail Aiken was also awarded a grant from the Society of Family Planning to better understand women’s future childbearing intentions and feelings about pregnancy as an extension of the Tx-PEP project currently underway. Her project Demographic Diversity in the Measurement and Meaning on Unintended Pregnancy will explore the measurement and interpretation of pregnancy intentions, and their association with contraceptive desires and use.
