I decided to educate the population on contraceptives because Danbury, CT is a heavily populated area with a low socioeconomic status and from 2002-2014 Connecticut as a whole has had 46-52% of all pregnancies considered unplanned or unintended compared to the 51% nationally. Patient knowledge regarding contraceptives is not at the level one would expect. Targeting contraceptive education is an effective primary prevention strategy for unplanned or unintended pregnancies.
