January 18, 2019: Sexual and Reproductive Health in 2019: It Was the Best of Times; It Was the Worst of Times

"Sexual and Reproductive Health in 2019: It Was the Best of Times; It Was the Worst of Times" 
Melissa Weiler Gerber, president and CEO of AccessMatters
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Salus University, Classroom S305-B

The presentation will highlight some of the most promising advancements in sexual and reproductive health, and focus on the political challenges to their realization. To do so, the talk focuses on the history of publicaly-funded reproductive health work in the United States, the politicization of such work, the current climate for engaging in it and the most pressing avenues for advocacy to ensure continued access to medically-accurate information and comprehensive, client-centered care. 

Please RSVP to Marie Szlona at 215.780.1526 by Monday, January 14 if attending.
