Drs. Heidi Jones, Diana Romero, Lynn Roberts, and Meredith Manze, all faculty at the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy, were recently awarded a $75,000 grant from the Society of Family Planning.

The grant looks at client and provider perspectives on reproductive intention screening during the primary care encounter, using a reproductive justice framework to strengthen reproductive health services in primary care in New York. The grant will be used to implement a cross-sectional waiting room survey of primary care clients in New York City and upstate New York, as well as a statewide survey of internal medicine and family physician doctors on preferences and attitudes toward inclusion of reproductive intention screening into primary care encounters in New York.
