National LARC Awareness Week: November 15 - 21, 2015
What is LARC Awareness Week?
LARC Awareness Week is a chance to increase awareness about LARCs as a safe, effective, low-maintenance and long-acting birth control method. The theme for this year is “Love My LARC” and it will give women an opportunity to share why they love their LARCs with video messages sent in through various social media platforms.
