[2:36] - What Exactly is Plan B?

And what it’s not

Plan B is an emergency contraceptive, taken within 72 hours after intercourse in order to prevent pregnancy. It’s not meant to be used on a routine basis as a contraceptive, and is not an abortion medication. It can be used both in the event of a broken condom or forgotten birth control, and in the rare but awful circumstance of rape.

[3:45] - Availability of Plan B

Finding it and stocking up

While no one should be hoarding Plan B, it is possible to stock up in case of emergencies. AHF pharmacies carry Plan B, and it has a shelf life of multiple years. The best part? All AHF pharmacies offer Plan B absolutely free, whereas many other pharmacies may sell it for as much as $50 per pill.

[7:43] - Pharmacists as Patient Advocates

More than dispensing medication

One thing you’ll find at all AHF pharmacies is that team members are much more than just pharmacists. Their goal is to advocate for patients, helping them overcome barriers and even sometimes remain discreet and confidential. They’re trained to be respectful and non-judgmental, making it as easy as possible to get the solution patients need and provide optimal healthcare.

[9:40] - Not Just HIV Specialists

Taking on public health in all areas

Today’s guests take another opportunity to remind listeners that AHF isn’t just focused on HIV patients. It is made up of public health experts who are dedicated to helping the community in a wide range of ways, and offering Plan B is just one facet of that.

In Detroit, history was made when Barry Gordy opened Motown Records back in 1960. More than just discovering great talent, Gordy built a systematic approach to launching superstars. His rigorous processes, technology, and development methods were the secret sauce behind legendary acts such as The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and Michael Jackson.

As a nod to the past, Detroit Podcast Studios leverages modern versions of Motown’s processes to launch today’s most compelling podcasts. What Motown was to musical artists, Detroit Podcast Studios is to podcast artists today. With over 75 combined years of experience in content development, audio production, music scoring, storytelling, and digital marketing, Detroit Podcast Studios provides full-service development, training, and production capabilities to take podcasts from messy ideas to finely tuned hits. 

Here’s to making (podcast) history together.
