April 12, 1978
CHOICE held the first of three “Bodies Classes” in the College Center. The first class discussed male and female anatomy and was taught by Vassar’s midwife Angela Colclough and Richard Saulga from Planned Parenthood.
The next class, held April 19 and taught by CHOICE member Susan Lee ‘78, focused on natural birth control.
In the April 26th class, instructor Carol Ann Pavacic ‘78, CHOICE member and EMT, discussed DES exposure. DES was a hormone prescribed to many pregnant women in the 1940s and 1950s; research suggested that children of DES mothers might have a higher risk of cancer.
