Reproductive Health: Policy and Advocacy

Leaders in the field of reproductive health, rights, and justice will discuss abortion access after the Dobbs’ decision and detail approaches public health advocates can take to respond to the resulting healthcare crisis. This program will include a briefing on the public policies dictating reproductive healthcare in the absence of constitutional protections for abortion and detail the devastating impacts of these shifting public policies on those seeking and providing abortion services.

Participants will have ample time for questions and deep discussion on this complex topic and will leave with tangible actions they can take to improve reproductive health equity.
