Susan Roberts-Dobie to head Speak-Up Salon Project
The Speak UP! Salon Project utilizes the power of the relationship between stylists and their clients to reduce unintended pregnancy. Based in salons in ten counties across Iowa, the Speak UP! Salon Project provides stylists with training, and educational materials that help them to address reproductive health issues with their clients. Many stylists have been talking about these issues informally for years. Speak UP! recognizes and builds on this rapport supporting the stylist and reaching out to women who are hard to reach with more traditional health education methods.
