Emily Galpern, Project Director on Reproductive Health and Human Rights, works with women's health and reproductive rights organizations to raise their awareness about new genetic and reproductive technologies; build their capacity to engage with related issues; and promote policy that reflects a commitment to women's health, reproductive rights, health equity, human rights, and social justice. Previously, she worked for 10 years promoting community health and well-being through coalition-building, advocacy, and health education. She holds a BA in Women's Studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz and obtained her Master's in Public Health in Community Health Education from San Francisco State University in 2004. She completed a graduate research project on women's sexual and reproductive health in southern Ecuador using a human rights framework, and conducted other research on health disparities and inequities and the impact of racial discrimination on health.
