If you’re a medical student or a student of another health profession interested in reproductive healthcare, consider attending Medical Students for Choice’s annual conference in Denver. Topics will include contraception, abortion, advocacy, and other issues.
As the website notes, “From hands-on opportunities to learn techniques to thoughtful explorations of personal issues related to providing abortion, MSFC’s Conference on Family Planning provides a safe environment for learning and networking with fellow students and mentors.”
