The Women in Healthcare Leadership Collaborative (WHLC) continues the WHLC Dobbs Series focused on the far-reaching impact of the recent Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Please join us on November 9th at 2:00 pm ET / 11:00 am PT for a virtual fireside chat to discuss the impact of Dobbs and state anti-abortion laws on health equity. We look forward to facilitating a timely discussion on, among other issues: (1) racial disparities in access to obstetrics and related care; (2) lack of trust in the healthcare system as an increasingly significant barrier to care; and (3) the adoption of innovative care delivery models that address health equity post-Dobbs in the context of a shifting legal landscape.

  2. Stephanie Swartz, Senior Director of Policy and Public Affairs, Favor
  3. Audrey Crowell (moderator), Associate, Sheppard Mullin
