In celebration of Black History Month, Physicians’ public policy manager Mimi Spalding has been honored by Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) as one of their 98 Dreamkeepers.
Mimi is celebrated as a Defender, one of the many helping to “ensure that women, men, and young people here and abroad have the tools for family planning and reproductive health care.” In her position as public policy manager, Mimi works tirelessly to ensure that reproductive health policies and laws are evidence based and justly represent underserved communities by engaging and supporting physician advocacy at both the state and federal levels, including efforts to pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and affirm immigrant women’s health as part of comprehensive immigration reform. She holds a Master of Public Health in Maternal and Child Health and a Juris Doctor, both from the University of Arizona.
Mimi says, “It is an honor to be selected as one of PPFA’s Top 98 Dream Keepers in the company of such remarkable individuals dedicated to uplifting and empowering our communities. I am thankful to Physicians for Reproductive Health for supporting my growth as an advocate, and to all my colleagues, who are devoted to protecting and securing comprehensive reproductive health care for all. I will continue this important and fulfilling work with a renewed sense of vigor!”
We at Physicians are so proud of Mimi and her commitment to fighting for comprehensive reproductive health care access for everyone. Congratulations, Mimi—and thank you for your outstanding work! Read More
