Please help us congratulate UW Collaborative for Reproductive Equity and UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive and Population Health Director Jenny Higgins, PhD, MPH, who was recently named the next Jeanne Bissell Professor in Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice! Higgins and Bissell, longtime supporter of the UW Department of Ob-Gyn, were honored at the first-ever UW School of Medicine and Public Health Faculty Investiture Celebration on October 12, 2022.

The Jeanne Bissell Professor is awarded to a faculty member whose main educational focus for faculty, residents, students, and staff is in reproductive justice. Reproductive justice includes, but is not limited to, evidence-based information and access to the full range of healthcare associated with family planning, including pregnancy termination.
