UT scholars to host forum Feb. 13 titled ‘Our Bodies, Ourselves in the Time of Trump’

The University of Toledo’s third post-election forum since President Donald Trump was elected focuses on the topic “Our Bodies, Ourselves in the Time of Trump” and implications of repealing the Affordable Care Act.

The free, public event to discuss health care, reproductive rights and LGBTQA+ issues is 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13 at the Kent Branch Library, 3101 Collingwood Blvd.

Featured speakers include:

  • Karen Hoblet, UT associate professor of nursing
  • Robert Salem, UT clinical professor of law and chair of the Equality Toledo Board of Directors
  • Anita Rios, Ohio NOW
  • Hillary Gyuras, community education manager for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio
  • Sarah Inskeep, regional field manager for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio
  • Katie Hunt Thomas, disability rights attorney for The Ability Center of Greater Toledo

The event is sponsored by the UT College of Law and the School for Interdisciplinary Studies in the College of Arts and Letters.
