Katherine Atcheson has been with the CTC-SRH since 2019, where she manages and produces the CTC-SRH podcast, co-manages the Clinician Café, and provides content and oversight for other online products and communications. Additionally, Katherine directs attendee engagement and special events for the annual conference, such as author talks, gamification, and charitable giving. She also serves as a CHES representative for continuing education credits, as needed.
Prior to joining CTC-SRH, Katherine worked as a health educator for Planned Parenthood of the Great Plains and STD/HIV contact tracer for the state of Kansas. Katherine earned her MPH from Boston University’s School of Public Health, with a concentration in maternal and child health, in 2014, and her BA in anthropology from Grinnell College in 2012. Katherine has continually held a Certified Health Education Specialist qualification from the National Commission on Health Education Credentialing since 2015, and has also completed trainings in family planning patient education and medical case management.
Katherine resides in the Kansas City metro area, where she was born and raised, with a very spoiled cat named Lucas. She enjoys baking, stand up comedy, taking pilates and dance classes, and is an active volunteer for her college’s alumni events.
Founded as the National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning (NCTCFP) in 2006, we changed our name to the Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) in 2023. We have been funded by the Office of Population Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services since inception and remain the primary source of clinical training for those providing sexual and reproductive health care in federally-funded settings.
Having served the Title X network for nearly two decades, our team of clinical experts recognized that the term “family planning” falls short of describing the client-centered and inclusive sexual and reproductive health services we offer, especially in an increasingly urgent and rapidly shifting healthcare landscape.
The newly-renamed Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) continues to provide evidence-based clinical training and resources to healthcare providers in Title X settings through increased healthcare quality, equity, and access.
