DENVER — Gov. John Hickenlooper is joining the state's chief medical officer to tout a state initiative to reduce teen births.

Hickenlooper and Dr. Larry Wolk are talking up the Colorado Family Planning Initiative at the Capitol on Thursday.

The initiative has provided more than 30,000 intrauterine devices or implants at to low-income women at 68 family planning clinics since 2009.

Hickenlooper says the family planning initiative has also helped thousands of young women avoid unintended pregnancy.
