This is the last event for Amnesty International UT's Human Rights Week 2013. The night will consist of a panel discussion how birth control affects the female body, uses of birth control beyond contraceptives, stigmas surrounding birth control, and why access to contraception is a basic human right. Panelists include Dr. Kathy Brown, PhD, Director of Community Assessment and Health Promotion at Knox County Health Center; Anita Blatnik, nurse practitioner at UT Student Health and specializes in birth control in young adults; Corinne Rovetti, Co-Director and a nurse practitioner at the Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health; Tory Mills, External Affairs Coordinator of Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee; and Mark Mohundro, Director of the Knoxville Reproductive Justice Coalition.
