Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth remains deeply committed to women’s healthcare and reproductive rights for all, including childbearing decisions, maternal health, and their effect on families through our research and education missions. The Supreme Court’s decision may have profound public health consequences and has the potential to exacerbate racial and socio-economic health disparities and put sexual violence survivors further at risk. As a medical school focused on training supportive healthcare professionals, we will continue promoting better health outcomes and access for women and other underserved communities.
