Our 2014 Conference on Family Planning
Our Conference on Family Planning is renowned for providing medical students and students of other health professions the abortion and family planning education they will not receive during their formal schooling. From hands-on opportunities to learn techniques to thoughtful explorations of personal issues related to providing abortion, MSFC’s Conference on Family Planning provides a safe environment for learning and networking with fellow students and mentors.
More than 5,000 students have attended this conference over these past 20 years and many have returned as teaching faculty for this extraordinary conference. During our special 20th anniversary conference in 2013, we celebrated the accomplishments and contributions of many of these former MSFC members. Join us as we move forward and make history!
