Description

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming demand, we have moved the event from the Widener Lecture Hall to the Harrison Auditorium at the Penn Museum. We look forward to seeing you all in April!



On Wednesday, April 19, visionaries and change-makers from diverse disciplines and backgrounds will come together to discuss opportunities for advancing the status of reproductive health, rights and justice.

The event will feature a keynote address on why reproductive justice matters, a panel discussion aimed at finding innovative ways to gain support and increase access to care, and interactive exhibits.

Clinicians, researchers, policymakers, students and individuals interested in deepening their understanding of reproductive health issues and exploring opportunities to find new strategies for advocacy, or integration into research, practice, or daily life are encouraged to attend.

Don't wait! Space is limited and registration is required.
