WE'RE EMPOWERING WOMEN'S HEALTH
with our Choose Well partnership
As part of our mission to empower women, helping to ensure that our region’s women are safe and healthy is key! Health and safety impact every area of life, including economic strength and supportive relationships. Each year we host workshops on women’s health topics, from an indaba for women with HIV/AIDS to a breast cancer forum where MUSC doctors talked about the latest medical advances in women's health and fielded questions from attendees.
In the summer of 2018, we launched our newest women's health initiative in partnership with Choose Well, designed to reduce unintended pregnancies by offering all women affordable access to eight methods of contraception.
The need is great, since half of all pregnancies in South Carolina are unintended and compromise the health, development, and economic stability of our women and children.
If you're an individual, attend one or more of our upcoming women's health forums — and bring your friends! Everyone is welcome.
If you have a specialty in women's health, please consider serving as an expert at one of our women's health workshops! You'll share your knowledge and field questions from individual women. We greatly value your expertise.
We welcome volunteers who pitch in to help our women's health forums run smoothly! Let us know if you're interested here.
If you work for an organization, we'd love it if you would host one of our women's health forums or serve as a distribution site!
