Abortion Access Fund, Inc. attended the American Public Health Associations (APHA) Annual Meeting & Exposition October 29th – November 2nd in Denver, Colorado.
We were the only abortion care centered exhibitor present and were very happy with the responses and conversations we were able to have with many participants. We spoke with hundreds of attendees and were happy to add many supporters to our mailing list.
We also were able to educate many students, community members and medical and public health professionals about abortion and reproductive healthcare, and specifically the limitations and barriers to accessing care, procedural facts, and legislative issues surrounding abortion.
We believe that this APHA conference was very beneficial for our fund, our associates and for all those who stopped by our exhibit. We are already looking forward to the APHA 2017 Annual Meeting & Expo. We would also like to congratulate our friend and colleague, Dr. Willie Parker, on receiving the Helen Rodriguez-Trias Social Justice Award from the American Public Health Association.
