I'm a non-physician longtime supporter of PRCH because they are so remarkably effective at supporting courageous physicians who are just trying to give the best possible medical care to their patients. PRCH helps both within the medical community and by representing the pro-choice medical community to the outside world. The staff makes the most of a small budget by leveraging technology and plain old hard work. PRCH is a voice of medical reason in the political wilderness of reproductive health!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Learning the facts about reproductive healthcare

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the amazing physicians who give their time and energy to help women, despite enormous pressure on them and their families

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

smart, hard-working, kind, and totally professional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help more physicians throughout the US and internationally!

Doctors tend to keep very low, very conservative profiles in their communities. This organization is VITAL because it allows both patients and politicians to understand that doctors believe that reproductive health is a key component of the health of people, families, and communities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Bringing reproductive health back into the mainstream of medicine, where it belongs.

Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health (PRCH) is a fantastic organization of professionals dedicated to ensuring the reproductive rights of women. Their wide range of programs include professional development, continuing education for medical professionals, legislative advocacy and activism and providing the media with access to knowledgeable physicians. Their staff is incredibly professional and truly dedicated to their mission. This nonprofit group is truly unique and offers a valuable service to the public. They deserve the highest commendation and will continue to have my lifetime support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...my professional career. Through training in the Leadership Development Institute with PRCH, I learned invaluable skills in advocacy and media relations which I would have never otherwise had the opportunity to acquire.
