Initiative for MPT Talk Series Continues
The Initiative for MPTs (IMPT) discussion series called "Let's Talk MPTs" is aimed at benefiting multipurpose prevention technologies (MPT) researchers and increasing interest in the MPTs among newer stakeholders. The series will cover an array of topics including socio-behavioral and market research, toxicity studies, policy and advocacy, and more.
On Wednesday May 18 at 10:30 AM EST this series will continue with a webinar that provides the opportunity to hear from end-user researchers and product developers involved in MPT R&D about challenges and strategies for, not just conducting end-user research, but, importantly, utilizing socio-behavioral research findings to effectively inform product development and marketing strategies. Speakers include Moushira El-Sahn (Routes2Results), Andrea Thurman (CONRAD), Liz Pinto (Evofem Biosciences, Inc.), and Karina Fedasz (Evofem Biosciences, Inc.) Register here for the event.
