Quality Care® Newsletter

NAFC's Quality Care® newsletter contains articles written by health professionals which are reviewed by their peers. It's distributed, via print and email, on a quarterly basis to over 20,000 consumers and healthcare professionals. This 8-10 page newsletter addresses the concerns of a diverse audience including those with bladder control concerns, voiding dysfunction, and related pelvic support, and their caregivers. Health professionals share it with patients in their waiting areas; often ordering multiple copies for distribution. Every quarter the latest issue is available in the "Latest News" section on NAFC's homepage and archived in the "Library" web section.

Support from industry allows NAFC to produce and disseminate valuable educational material. Please contact Meg Hansen mhansen@nafc.org to learn more about sponsorship opportunities and pricing.
