Access is a key to reproductive freedom. There is no access without providers.

Desert Star Institute for Family Planning

We’re a woman- and minority-led organization that educates health professions students and the community in comprehensive family planning care. By filling gaps in traditional medical education with early exposure to family planning care provision, we help family planning providers maintain access to the full range of reproductive health care.

What We Do

Desert Star Institute for Family Planning cultivates abortion and family planning providers to maintain access to the full range of reproductive health care for people who can become pregnant.

Preparing the Next Generation

“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!”
