The Intersection of Social Justice + Health: The Epidemic of Incarceration drew over 100 attendees and sparked conversation around a critical issue in American society today. Our thanks to the Penn Alumni Club of Boston and local event host committee members for their partnership.
Hahnemann’s Nurse-Midwifery practice was founded by two Penn graduates. Numerous Penn students had the opportunity to learn at Hahnemann, and some joined the practice after graduation.
Penn Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health recognizes the closure of Hahnemann as a major loss in access to reproductive health and choice in Philadelphia, and a devastating example of the priority of profit over the health of the community.
