Meet Our Advocates: Dr. Melissa Wong (she/her)

Where do you call home?
New Jersey.

What are your clinical or research interests?
I’m interested in optimizing patient education in IUD self-removal.

What current policy issue motivates you to be an advocate?
It’s really difficult to pick just one issue. The radicalized movements against the right to abortion, LGBTQ+ rights, and CRT are issues that motivate me to be an advocate.

What local justice-centered organization do you wish we knew about?
The West Fund is an abortion fund based in El Paso, Texas that supports the community through education and reproductive justice-centered leadership.

What is bringing you joy these days?
I love exploring the outdoors and going for a hike. Spending time with my friends and family (including my two cats) are what bring me joy these days.

Our Meet Our Advocates series showcases the talents and passion of one of our doctors and finds out, in their own words, what inspires them to be physician advocates. Melissa Wong, MD is a current Fellow in our Leadership Training Academy Class of 2023. Dr. Wong practices complex family planning in Massachusetts.
