While women today are confident and in control of their relationships and careers, a new survey conducted by Harris Interactive of 2,000 U.S. women ages 20-39, reveals that they may not be taking the same initiative when it comes to an important health decision – their contraception.
As part of the campaign, Merck has joined forces with actress JoAnna Garcia Swisher to help inspire today's woman to take control of her health and be proactive in evaluating her options.
“My girlfriends and I often share our tips and secrets on how we manage to juggle everything in our lives without ever having to settle. As the daughter of an OB/GYN, I learned from an early age the importance of educating myself to better understand my health options,” said Swisher. “I am excited to partner with Merck on Let’s Go There to encourage other women to take charge of all aspects of their lives, whether career or relationships, or most importantly – their health. Today, with all the different birth control options available, it’s important to take time to talk to your healthcare provider about which method best fits your lifestyle.”
Let's Go There reminds modern women that whatever stage of life they're in, they don't need to settle for what's not working.To learn more about JoAnna’s story and the survey findings, or to get involved with the campaign by "liking us" on Facebook, visit: www.Facebook.com/LetsGoThere.
