New Dates for Option Ultrasound™ Regional Information Meetings

Welcome to Focus on the Family's Option Ultrasound™ Program! We want to inform you of changes in the Regional Information Meetings.

We received great feedback from all of you, and the changes made to the Regional Information Meetings will better serve your needs by providing more specific training in key areas. The most significant change is that your Option Ultrasound Application Form must be completed and submitted prior to attending a Regional Information Meeting.

Please review the criteria below, as well as the meeting dates in order to plan accordingly for your attendance.

If you have any questions, please email Robyn Chambers, Option Ultrasound Program Coordinator, at [email protected] .
