50th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae & 20th Anniversary for MU Institute for NFP: Healthcare Professionals Answering the Call to Provide Evidence Based Natural Family Planning.
Based on the call from Pope Paul VI in Humanae vitae that it is their professional duty for physician and nurses to acquire the knowledge necessary to provide natural family planning services and for Catholic scientists to develop secure methods of natural family planning for health professionals we propose a conference co-provided by the Marquette University Institute for Natural Family Planning, the Wisconsin Guilds of the Catholic Medical Association, and the Marquette Chapter of University Faculty for Life for the purpose of discovering and analyzing the fifty year progress in 1) developing evidenced based methods of NFP, and 2) integrating the provision of NFP within the practice of medicine and nursing in providing women’s health care.
