Preparing the Next Generation

Dr. Taylor in scrubs lecturing in front of a group of medical students.

“Dr. Taylor and her staff are exceedingly experienced and passionate about women’s health; they taught me how to thoughtfully approach family planning and challenged me to consider my role in advocacy as a future practicing physician. I would recommend this experience to medical students wishing to expand their exposure to family planning!”
