Women's Health Free Clinic Happy Hour Fundraiser this Saturday!

The WHFC is the nation's first comprehensive student-run free women's health clinic. The clinic is a partnership between New York University School of Medicine, the Reproductive Health Access Project, and the Institute for Family Health. Since our opening on February 9th, 2008 we have provided, at no cost to our patients, a full-range of reproductive health services including contraception, options counseling, medication abortion, specialty referrals, counseling, and patient education. We are dedicated to training medical students in patient-centered reproductive heath care and to nurturing the longstanding traditions of volunteerism and community service among healthcare professionals.

The fundraiser will also serve as the Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) Regional conference social event. This fundraiser is open to the public (so bring all your friends!) and will be broadly advertised to the greater medical community.

Please join us to raise money for WHFC. All of your donations will go directly to patient care. Belmont Lounge is a lovely venue right by Union Square- start your night early with a few drinks for a good cause!

WHAT: WHFC Happy Hour Fundraiser
WHEN: April 11, Saturday, 5-8PM
WHERE: Belmont Lounge (117 E. 15th Street New York, NY)
