Team Member Spotlight: Lily's Time with NSRH


I joined NSRH in the early Spring of 2020, right as the COVID-19 pandemic was beginning to take hold, excited about the opportunity to contribute to a small but mighty team of folks who shared my passions for reproductive health, rights, and justice. I thought I’d work throughout the summer and leave NSRH when I began my Master of Public Health program at Boston University that fall. Now, nearly two years later, I have finished my Master’s degree and I am saying farewell to NSRH as I begin my next journey. 

I’ve been honored to be part of the NSRH network and to have seen all the ways our community has grown together. Since I joined, we’ve fully launched our Membership Program, grown the Online Institute, began our inaugural cohort of Karen Edlund Fellows, and revamped and relaunched our Training in Abortion Care Residency. I am so proud of all we have accomplished and can’t wait to see what’s in store for NSRH in the future. I am confident you all will continue to do innovative, important work that centers the needs of our community and prioritizes equity and justice. 

It’s been such a pleasure and a privilege to work with our community of disruptive nurses. I have loved interacting with all of you, uplifting your voices on social media, and learning from the incredible work you do every day to make compassionate, comprehensive SRH care accessible for your communities.

It’s bittersweet for me to leave NSRH; I have enjoyed my time here and have learned so much from each and every one of you. The passion for reproductive rights, health, and justice that brought me to NSRH in the first place has grown exponentially stronger since I joined the team in 2020. Though I am sad to leave, I am excited about what’s to come. I won't be straying too far from NSRH’s mission in this next stage of my SRH journey - I’ll be joining a program working to increase equitable access to contraception through, among other things, provider education. I hope to cross paths with many of you in this role and anywhere else my career takes me. It would bring me so much joy to be in community with you again one day in the future.

With love and gratitude for all that you do,

Lily Acton
