This is the second of a 3-part survey series that will run through the end of 2020 (approximately one survey every 6 months), which will provide insights to help us identify opportunities for educational programs. We thank P&G for their support of this program. A summary of results will be jointly developed by IFDH and P&G to post online, share via social media and use in educational programs.
