40th Anniversary Alumni Spotlight: Melissa Winship ’05; Works to Break Down Barriers to Reproductive Health Services
Melissa Winship ’05, at right, graduated from Center for Distance Learning with a B.S. in human development.
She is an outreach coordinator at Pro-Choice Resources in Minneapolis, Minn. a nonprofit organization that addresses reproductive health issues along the full continuum of needs, from unplanned pregnancy and disease prevention to directly reducing barriers to reproductive health services. PCR programs break down barriers to reproductive health access and information, particularly in disadvantaged communities, through direct service, systems advocacy and individual empowerment.
Winship is pursuing her master’s degree in psychotherapy and School Counseling at Adler Graduate School in Minneapolis.
In honor of the college's 40th anniversary year, we will spotlight alumni from across the college, celebrating the range of academic, career and personal paths; geographic locations; modes of learning; and life circumstances and experiences supported by a SUNY Empire State College degree program.
