For the CHOICE spreadsheet, refer to: Community Table Event Database Have staff keep tally on paper of how many people visited the table during their shift at an event; enter into spreadsheet afterward Keeping track helps decide whether to attend the following year, as well as helps to evaluate your marketing and outreach efforts

13 Other Logistics Best to have at least 2 staff persons available for each shift at an event Outreach can help promote practice & gain patients Give out free items such as candy, pens, buttons, or t-shirts Great opportunity for ‘on-the-spot’ contraceptive counseling and myth debunking
