Medical Students for Choice
June 21, 2011
As a medical student, it is easy to feel lost in the midst of the predominantly conservative, often male-driven culture of medicine. Through MSFC, I have found a community of physicians and students who share a passion not only for reproductive justice, but all the issues that are closely tied to reproductive rights: women's health, healthcare access, health inequities, feminism, and social justice. I cannot say enough about the contributions that MSFC has and will make to the betterment of reproductive health education and access. On a personal level, it is the organization that has been most powerfully responsible for my personal, social and career-oriented development in medical school.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being made to feel like I am a part of a community of people who care deeply about the rights and wellbeing of all women.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give it more funding.
Volunteer & With my colleagues, I've helped organize reproductive health-related talks and a Planned Parenthood observership through MSFC.
