- On GTU Hour 2 this morning – University of Utah Health researchers want to relieve some of the burden that women face with birth control. They are working on a contraceptive gel for men, and they are looking for 12 couples to help with a study. “In our society, women have primarily been responsible for contraception because they, not necessarily men, have to live with the consequences,” said Dr. David Turok, one of the trial’s lead investigators, in a news release. He also is the chief of the Division of Family Planning in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University of Utah Health. “This is a fabulous opportunity for men to step up and take an active role in the development of new methods of contraception,” he said. “By doing this, they can demonstrate to their partners that they’re invested in a better future for all of us.” Tune to see how you can participate in the study, or click here for more: https://www.cedarcityutah.com/news/archive/2022/01/25/prc-a-fabulous-opportunity-for-men-to-step-up-university-of-utah-testing-new-male-contraceptive-gel/

- And parenting is hard and parenting during a pandemic, as the past two years of the coronavirus pandemic has shown, is immeasurably harder. In a sign of the frustrations the pandemic has brought, a group of mothers in Massachusetts has begun gathering together to simply scream. Their first primal scream session, held in March 2021, saw around one dozen moms show up on a dark, freezing night in Boston to scream together. The second scream session, which took place earlier this month, on Jan. 13, saw nearly double the number of moms gather for around 20 minutes to scream.
- Finally, have you ever made a word of the year? It’s an alternative to a New Year’s Resolution and here’s how it works: It’s a word that is meant to highlight what I want to focus on during the year. It isn’t tied to a specific resolution or goal, it’s just meant to act as an overall theme for the next 12 months. One time it was “adventure,” another time was “consistency,” and this year it’s “wellness.” Hope you tune in as we dive into these Hot Topics and more this morning on GTU Hour 2.
