This grant funded Building a Culture of Health through a Laundromat-Based Health Educational Intervention Focused on Women’s Fertility, Pregnancy, and Health-Seeking Behaviors, a study to assess the efficacy of a reproductive health educational intervention (EI) in Washington, District of Columbia (WDC) laundromats. Laundromats provide services to community members who predominantly identify as biological females (women) of lower socio-economic backgrounds. Patrons generally have time to engage and interest in a short EI while waiting for laundry and visit their local laundromats regularly.
