Pharmacists for Reproductive Education and Sexual Health
Pharmacists for Reproductive Education and Sexual Health (PhRESH) is a committee led by pharmacy students within our Washington State Pharmacy Association chapter at WSU Spokane. Our mission is to educate on contraceptive resources available within the Eastern Washington community. Over the past year, we have delivered both in-person and virtual presentations regarding contraceptive access and care both in the Spokane and Pullman communities.
Through quality improvement surveys, we have identified that the resources available in these communities are not well known or utilized and that there are several barriers facing these communities in accessing contraceptive care. A large barrier we have identified was financial, especially with regard to emergency contraceptives.
As a committee dedicated to increasing contraceptive accessibility within our community, our goal is to host an emergency contraceptive (EC) drive where we can offer free ECs and pamphlets which include resources for financial assistance and follow-up care. Since we have identified Pullman's resources are especially underutilized, we would like to conduct our first drive at WSU Pullman during the move-in week and fall family weekend, which will help students become oriented with their healthcare resources from the very beginning of their stay in Pullman.
With your donation, we will be able to purchase these emergency contraceptives and pamphlets to promote and empower students to take charge of their reproductive health.
