Community Health Action Roundtable discusses abortion care in Pennsylvania

At the Community Health Action Roundtable event held Jan. 23, 2020, Sarah Horvath, MD, MSHP, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Penn State College of Medicine, spoke on abortion care in Pennsylvania.

Specifically, Dr. Horvath’s talk focused on how care in Pennsylvania differs from that in states with different regulations and access issues.

The presentation was co-sponsored by Penn State Center for Women’s Health Research. The mission of Penn State Center for Women’s Health Research is to promote research on women’s health ­and on sex/gender differences related to health by supporting a network of faculty members in multiple disciplines who are interested in research collaborations to study various aspects of women’s health.

Community Health Action Roundtable is a discussion and activism group consisting of concerned citizens from the general Hershey area, including both those who work in health care and those who are patients and caregivers. It is not affiliated with Penn State Health/Penn State College of Medicine but has many participants from the organization, including co-founder Carol Weisman, PhD, distinguished professor of public health sciences and obstetrics and gynecology at Penn State College of Medicine and distinguished professor of health policy and administration for Penn State College of Health and Human Development. Judd Mellinger-Blouch, MPA, FASPR, director of the Pennsylvania Primary Care Career Center, is the other co-founder.
