ARHP Launches Next Generation Curriculum Development Tool for Health Educators, Providers, and the Public



New and improved “CORE” tool makes trusted reproductive health education and information more accessible online than ever before

For Immediate Release
April 21,  2010

WASHINGTON, DC— The Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP), representing more than 12,000 reproductive health care providers, researchers, and educators, is pleased to announce the release of the newly redesigned and expanded CORE (Curricula Organizer for Reproductive Health Education) tool  at www.arhp.org/core.

In keeping with ARHP’s commitment to providing open-access educational resources, CORE is a free tool, available to anyone preparing and presenting on reproductive health issues.  The updated tool features a streamlined design to showcase educational materials, including images and videos, and offers an improved user experience through enhanced search mechanisms.  Visitors can now create accounts for saving materials, contribute ratings and comments, link to related CME programs, and find the most relevant and popular resources quickly and easily.  

"Longtime users will be pleased with CORE’s advanced functionality and fun new features," says Wayne C. Shields, ARHP's president and CEO.  "New users will appreciate the ease of use that makes the new CORE site such a popular source for evidence-based, peer-reviewed reproductive health education materials."

The comprehensive redesign project was based on extensive feedback from CORE users. Boston Interactive, a Web design company, managed the CORE expansion project with the goal of making the site more dynamic, inviting, and user-friendly. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation provided the funding that made the extensive redesign possible.
