Student Leader: Grace Masters 

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Tara Kumaraswami

Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) is dedicated to ensuring that all women have access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare. MSFC recognizes that one of the greatest obstacles to safe and legal abortion is the absence of trained providers. On a national level, we work to make reproductive health care, including abortion, a part of standard medical education and residency training. Here at UMass, we seek to educate our student body about reproductive healthcare options, existing barriers to acquiring reproductive healthcare, and advocate for the right to reproductive healthcare here in Massachusetts. Past MSFC activities have included shadowing at Planned Parenthood centers, visits from educational speakers, participative simulations of reproductive healthcare, and lunchtime discussion groups.
