The UC Center for Public Engagement with Science is back with its monthly feature, Cincinnati Science Roundup. Check out events and news related to science in July from our collaborators and community partners in Greater Cincinnati!
Episode 130 of the podcast Prognosis Ohio features Sociologist and PEWS Faculty Affiliate Dr. Danielle Bessett of the Ohio Policy Evaluation Network and Morgan Mitchell of the Abortion Fund of Ohio about the state of changing abortion access in Ohio, especially medication abortion. The conversation includes pending legal cases that stand to increase health disparities throughout Ohio, upcoming elections with implications for basic abortion rights, and the reaction of the medical community to this incursion into patient-provider decision-making.
