Fellow Joins Prestigious Bixby Center for Work in Reproductive Health


Sarah Raifman, recently completing her fellowship with BKF, will now be joining the University of California, San Francisco’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health as a Research Manager. In part, she will be working on a project with the Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) center at UCSF. The project, entitled the “Global Turnaway Study,” examines the issue of women being denied legal abortions in various nations. ANSIRH’s study investigates how the unplanned pregnancies impact women’s lives, in regards to health and socioeconomics. To add to her remarkable work, Sarah plans to continue work with her BKF mentor Dr. Joseph Speidel, Co-Director of the Bixby Center. Dr. Speidel is a distinguished academic in the areas of family planning, contraception, and reproductive health.
