International Women’s Day at Direct Relief International

SANTA BARBARA INDEPENDENT – Direct Relief’s Kirchmaier Volunteer Center was standing room only Friday morning, March 8, as more than 150 people gathered in honor of International Women’s Day to celebrate achievements and acknowledge remaining hurdles, including the lack of global access to affordable maternal health care. This year’s theme was “balance for better — the better the balance, the better the world.”

“I couldn’t agree more,” said Dr. Jessica Grossman, CEO of Medicines360, “There’s no better way to create balance than to give women access to affordable contraception.”
