Voices of Reproductive Justice Committee Co-chairs, Professor Christina Yongue and Professor Amanda Tanner coordinated and hosted this event. Professor Yongue and Dr. Tanner serve as reproductive advocates in the Department of Public Health Education as well as in the community. Additionally, this webinar would not have been possible without the incredible coordinating work of Hilda Midianga, who is a graduating senior in the Community Health Education Concentration. Hilda is completing her Health Education Internship with the Voices for Reproductive Planning Team. There are 14 members of the Voices for Reproductive Planning Team. We appreciate their dedication in making this event possible.
