This is an Archive of a Past Event

A Conversation Dr. Alyssa Burgart

The June 2022 Dobbs decision turned abortion regulation over to the states, allowing “trigger laws” to immediately restrict patients’ already limited abortion access. Not limited to abortion clinics, these laws send clinical practice into a tailspin, impacting preventative care to emergency services. Join this conversation about pregnant and pregnant-capable people, bodily autonomy, and the practice of medicine in the post-Roe landscape.
