If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work? :

If named a winner, I would launch a new line of work focused on healthcare providers' attitude and beliefs about new approaches to promoting reproductive autonomy, including over-the-counter access to contraception and self-removal of intrauterine devices. My goal is to translate this work into actionable insights to improve family planning care and meaningfully engage students in the research process in order to train the next generation of family planning leaders.
