My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Medical Students For Choice, Philadelphia, PA, USA
When I began MedSchool, I was afraid that all of my classmates would be from privileged backgrounds, and that I wouldn't be able to build a community around those issues that most mattered to me. As a queer woman of color, Women's health and reproductive rights are keystone issues that I hope to improve upon as a practicing physician. The first MSFC meeting at UC Davis (2010) opened with a picture of Dr. Tiller on the projector which started a crucial conversation on abortion provider attacks. In this way and many others, they have made incredible strides in re framing an emotionally charged and divisive issue into one of healthcare, access to quality care and patient rights.
