Natural Family Planning


For the past ten years, the Marquette University College of Nursing INFP has developed and presented a yearly, scholarly National NFP Conference. In 2002, 2006, and 2010 the INFP collaborated with the Natural Family Planning Department of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide a National NFP Conference that addressed the issues of faith and science as they relate to human fertility and NFP. Proceeding books of these conferences are available through Marquette University Press.
