WIL Lunch at Antonello's 


Dr. Jennefer Russo

Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of

Orange and San Bernardino Counties  




Join us for Lunch with Dr. Jennefer Russo, Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties and fighter for women’s reproductive rights. She is a graduate of Cornell University and The George Washington School of Medicine and has a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Pittsburgh. 

Jennefer has been with Planned Parenthood since 2012, and she is also an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCI School of Medicine. 

Jennefer fights for us in the trenches in the battle to protect the reproductive rights of all women and girls.  She has overseen the creation of many of Planned Parenthood’s medical programs for women’s care, from well-patient check-ups to abortion procedures.  In her role, she daily sees the anti-choice fanatics protesting outside of the Planned Parenthood offices and clinics, harassing patients who are there simply seeking medical help.  She hears the fear and despair of those women and she herself faces the threat of personal violence inevitable in her brave choices.  Come hear her story.  She is a fighter for us all.

A quote from Jennefer: “We need to continue to stand together. Those of us in the medical profession need you as our allies, to keep speaking up for reproductive health care. Those who are anti-contraception and anti-abortion want to take us backwards. But we will not go back. We have come too far. Keep fighting!”
