This class will utilize a hands-on and practical approach to understanding reproductive healthcare in the context of policy and management. Students will have the opportunity to think through real-world case studies and engage with relevant reproductive healthcare topics. Such topics include contraception, abortion, forced sterilization, abuses of power, gender, and gender identity.
This course aims to give students the opportunity to clarify and strengthen their own ideas, biases, and values related to reproductive healthcare. Our work in this class will culminate in a final presentation and opinion piece in which the student will advocate for something in which they believe in related to reproductive health. While it is not required that the student eventually submits their writing for publication, I encourage it.
