Dr. Rebecca Stone, Clinical Associate Professor, recently collaborated with the American Society of Emergency Contraception (ASEC) to complete a national survey assessing emergency contraception access in community pharmacies. Thirteen UGA College of Pharmacy students participated in the research for this report by collecting data from 200 Georgia pharmacies. The report includes data for the national sample, but 76% of the data is from Dr. Stone and her team’s report. According to Dr. Stone, “This report does a nice job highlighting the current issues we have with emergency contraception access in our state, which is particularly important now that abortion access is becoming more restrictive.”
