Why:

Female genital cutting (FGC) is a significant public health problem affecting approximately 200 million women worldwide and more than ½ a million women/girls in the USA. The DC, Virgina, and Maryland area is home to the US’ second largest population of women/girls affected by FGC.

This is a research study to assess the impact of an educational workshop on the knowledge, attitudes, confidence and skills of providers and students who may care for women and girls with FGC. The FREE workshop features the nation’s expert on FGC, Dr. Crista Johnson-Agbakwu, MD, FACOG and includes hands-on skill building in assessment, diagnosis, counseling and management. Participants will learn best practices for surgical defibulation procedure and challenging ethical and legal counseling.

Social service providers and all practitioners focused in reproductive, pediatric, school and/or mental health settings welcome.  This event open to students.
