AHA in the News

AHA executive director James Grossman was featured in a Chronicle of Higher Education article by Sylvia Goodman about the challenges of choosing locations for academic conferences after the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision by the Supreme Court. “A law banning abortion makes it impossible for us to ask our members to convene,” Grossman said, noting that the AHA sees this as an issue of equal rights, including access to “appropriate and equal medical treatment.” Grossman also discussed the AHA and OAH’s joint statement on the Dobbs decision, which criticized the majority opinion’s use of history that “did not meet professional standards.”
