Mount Olive Democrats were pleased to welcome two guest speakers to our August Monthly Meeting. We heard about what is at stake this election, what we can do to take action and real-life stories of how individual lives depend on reproductive freedoms.

DR. RITA SERGONIS – PEDIATRICIAN
Rita has 12 years of experience caring for hospitalized patients that range from newborn to adolescents. She is passionate about putting patients first and ensuring timely, evidence-based, equitable care for all. She has seen vulnerable adolescent populations struggle with the news of finding out they are pregnant, and would like to share some of these stories, because abortion IS healthcare, and access to this service is vital for pediatric patients.
Rita currently works at Bryn Mawr Hospital as the medical director for pediatric hospital medicine. She was formerly a member of the complex care team, medical behavioral unit, and both general pediatric and subspecialty care hospitalist teams at CHOP. She completed her medical training at St. Louis Children’s Hospital at Washington University in St. Louis.
