Perhaps no field in medicine generates the level of controversy as reproductive medicine. From restrictions on research funding, to patients problems in accessing care and ill informed regulatory proposals the work of the Public Affairs Office can be daunting.  The task is made no easier when we find ourselves consistently out-funded by economic and ideological opponents. Gifts to the J. Benjamin Younger Office of Public Affairs Fund help ensure a level playing field for our advocates.

Short term the program benefits the organization by providing as additional source of labor for the Public Affairs Office. The Fellow would receive a stipend for 6 months.
