Introducing myself and my journal: International Reproductive Health and Rights

About Me:
I am a graduate student in the International Health track of the Master's in Public Health program at Oregon State University. I am passionate about women's health, with a specific interest in reproductive health and rights. I hope to work abroad again in the future, advocating for family's access and education to a full range of reprodutive health services. When a woman is able to choose if and when she wants to have children, not only does she benefit by being given a greater opportunity to pursue her dreams and goals, but the entire community benefits as well by investing in the future of their young men and women.

I would love to hear from others who are interested in these same topics. I plan to do my internship abroad, possibly returning to Thailand where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer from 2004-06. Any and all professional connections I can make with others in a similar field or with similar interests would be much appreciated.

Welcome!

Welcome to our thriving community of women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere!

I think you'll feel right at home here on PulseWire, amidst a community of people who are passionate about women's issues - including health. While our member directory search function is a bit limited in search capabilities, here are some dynamo women to check out and connect with who are leaders in their communities and countries when it comes to women's health and reproductive rights. The best way to connect with a fellow PulseWire member is to comment on one of their journals (which are listed below their profile picture), add them as a friend, or send them a private message.
