Reproductive Justice Through the Lens of Social Work, Public Health and Social Policy

Thursday, December 1, 2022 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

The landscape around abortion rights has changed greatly following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which ended a nearly 50-year precedent protecting reproductive rights. Join us and our panel discussion on understanding the Dobbs decision from a social work, public health, and social policy lens, and the interdisciplinary impact and intersectionality of our professions in reproductive justice.

Register online to receive Zoom information on the morning of the event. You can also join us during the live stream.
