Fertility Awareness Based Methods for Women's Health and Family Planning focuses on the basic principles of FABMs, their effectiveness for family planning and the supporting science behind their medical applications. This course will explore the global and historical reach and evolution of FABMs. Students will survey current FABMs including the research supporting their use, their effectiveness rates, and their respective pros and cons via online video modules. Teaching is provided through on-line presentation modules and in class discussion that introduce students to each of the methods. Students will also hear from women and couples who use the methods. There will be required readings, on-line quizzes, and the completion of two projects. For the final project, students will interview a woman or couple that uses an FABM and summarize their comments in a brief paper. Students will also have to write a brief synopsis of one of the required research articles as part of their final project.
