Calling Repro Freedom Dreamers & Doers!
Written by Jeff Koetje, MD, AMSA Reproductive Health Programming Strategist
The late civil rights activist, Toni Cade Bambara, once said:
“The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible.”
This year’s Abortion Care & Reproductive Health Institute will help future physicians lead with positive values that point to a better world for us all. The Institute will be an exploration of what it means to say that
“hope is not a feeling, it is a discipline“
“So, if you are a future physician who is also
a Reproductive Freedom Dreamer and Doer,
this Institute might be for you!
Read on, and apply…
A leadership training academy as much as a reproductive health institute, the multi-month program will be a deep dive opportunity to build knowledge, skills, and connections in a supportive, nurturing, and Love-centered community to help us connect with joy in the labor of collective liberation. Participants will be supported with mentoring and resources to develop a project action toolkit that will be shared with AMSA members & chapters who want to join in the movement for reproductive freedom.
The Institute program includes hands-on training, project resources and development support, facilitated connections, one-on-one mentoring and coaching, and much more! As an experiment of what togetherness can look like in a world irreversibly changed by the COVID pandemic, we’ve designed the program to include virtual, on-demand, and in-person engagement that centers practices of community care, harm reduction, repair, and healing, in acknowledgment of the vast extent of harm and trauma that people are experiencing and carrying with them.
Those selected for the Institute will receive the following financial support:
- AMSACon2023 Registration Fee Waiver ($200)
- Convention travel and hotel stipend ($600)
- Project toolkit stipend ($500)
