The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) will host the inaugural Health Workforce Equity Summit on June 18 to discuss the growing crisis facing reproductive health access. The summit is an initiative of the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity, which works to strengthen health workforce policies in the United States and around the world. The summit is titled “Reproductive Health in Crisis: What Workforce Strategies are Needed?”
Dr. Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the nation’s leading provider of sexual and reproductive health care and education, will keynote the summit. Her remarks will focus on challenges to the workforce who deliver reproductive health services, including doctors, nurses, nurse midwives, among others.
The summit will feature two panel conversations between reproductive health leaders and health workforce experts about strategies that can enhance access to reproductive health in light of states’ recent actions to restrict care. Dr. Patricia Pittman, director of the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity, and Dr. Candice Chen, associate professor of health policy and management at Milken Institute SPH, will moderate the discussions.
