Healthcare Providers

Welcome to the Power Your Health, Power Your Life website! With input from young women and health care providers throughout Utah, this site is designed to offer important information to young women in the preconception or interconception phase of life. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is critical to ensuring not only health for young women of childbearing age, but also the best possible birth outcomes for future generations. Healthy lifestyles can also help Utah keep its distinction as the state with the lowest infant mortality rate in the nation.

Please recommend it to your patients, and feel free to use the handouts and other educational materials to reinforce important messages that you give about staying healthy!
