CUNY Researchers Awarded a Grant from the Society of Family Planning

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.
