The Dobbs Ruling: Implications for Health Care Providers and Trainees

On Thursday, August 11 at 5:30 p.m., Yale School of Medicine (YSM) will host the fourth panel discussion in the series delving into the implications of the recent US Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Dobbs overruled Roe v. Wade and held that the United States Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. These discussions are part of YSM’s commitment to lead through collaboration and education.

This session, The Dobbs Ruling: Implications for Health Care Providers and Trainees, will focus on the potential ramifications of Dobbs for health care providers and trainees, both in Connecticut and in states that have severely limited access to abortions.

Panelists will include:

Amy (Meg) Autry, MD, professor and interim chief, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCSF, Fresno; vice chair of Graduate Medical Education and Continuing Medical Education for UCSF Obstetrics and Gynecology; member of the Academy of Medical Educators; former president of Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (2014-16); board examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology
