Abortions resume in Wisconsin

After more than a year, abortions resume in Wisconsin. In the year that they were banned, abortions in nearby Illinois increased seven-fold. The Women’s Medical Fund of Wisconsin was vital during this time in helping Wisconsin women obtain abortions in Illinois.

Half of Americans interested in updated COVID shot

About half of Americans are interested in getting an updated COVID shot, according to new data from a Reuters/Ipsos poll. This is an increase from last year where only one in six Americans were interested. Additional doses beyond the first two initial shots plus one booster are not currently required for those over 65, according to the World Health Organization.

CDC rebuilds trust

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s new leader Mandy Cohen, MD, MPH wants to rebuild trust in the agency by improving communication, focusing on data collection, and translating that data rapidly for the public. "Data is the oxygen that drives all this work. If we don't have data, we don't have evidence, then we can't make good recommendations,” Cohen said at a press conference.
