Jenny Higgins, PhD, MPH

Jenny is Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UW-Madison. Trained in both gender studies and public health, she conducts mixed-methods research on abortion and contraception, often in collaboration with trainees and mentees. Directing CORE is her dream job.

Jenny loves writing letters, swimming, visiting her teeny tiny public library, and entrenching her laugh lines. Her family members, especially the beloved Taco Cat, help significantly with the latter.

Jenny is also the Director of the Population and Reproductive Health Division within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
