The Medical Students for Choice Chapter at UCSF is seeking funding to attend our annual Conference on Family Planning in December. Through the generosity of both internal UCSF and external donors, we were able to send more than 20 students to the conference last year, without concern for their ability to pay. Over 20 medical students attended the conference last year, where we were able to learn about the landscape of abortion access across the country, the importance of advocacy, family planning techniques, and so much more.
We feel that the Conference on Family Planning is an important educational and community building opportunity in this difficult political moment for women. We estimate needing about $500 per student (including registration, lodging, and transportation to Philadelphia) and over 30 students have shown interest in attending.
