Emily Feher
is committed to improving adolescent sexual and reproductive health globally and locally.  Feher is working with Mississippi First, where she is helping expand access to high-quality sex education and youth-friendly services in a state with the third highest teen birthrate in the nation. She wrote a successful grant proposal to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for a five-year cooperative agreement, which was awarded to only three organizations nationwide. This grant is enabling Mississippi First to help at-risk youth aged 15-19 to obtain reproductive health information and services in the Mississippi Delta. The grant also led to the creation of Teen Health Mississippi, a nonprofit Feher is now leading with a focus on improving access to reproductive health services for vulnerable teens.
