Dan Grossman receives the Ortho Outstanding Researcher Award at Reproductive Health 2007
September 15, 2007 – Ibis Senior Associate Dan Grossman received the Ortho Outstanding Researcher Award at Reproductive Health 2007, a meeting sponsored by the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals, Planned Parenthood® Federation of America, the Society for the Advancement of Reproductive Care, and the Society of Family Planning. The award was for Dr. Grossman’s presentation entitled, “Self-screening for contraindications to oral contraceptives: evidence for the safety of over-the-counter access.” This study examined how well women from the general population could self-screen for contraindications to combined oral contraceptives (COCs) using a checklist. It concluded that over-the-counter provision of COCs would likely be safe, especially for younger women and if independent blood pressure screening were encouraged.
