Report: 2011-2012 Wisconsin State Budget: Impact on Wisconsin Women and Girls

In her work as a Population Health Service Fellow at the Wisconsin Alliance for Women's Health, Emma Hynes authored a report entitled, "2011-2012 Wisconsin State Budget: Impact on Wisconsin Women and Girls." The report examines how the significant cuts made in the most recent state budget in areas such as medicaid, public transit, child care, transitional jobs program, and public education affect the health and well-being of women and girls in Wisconsin. Emma presented her report most recently at the February Fellow meeting, where she described the importance of translating the multi-dimensional effects of budget cuts into understandable terms for consumers, advocates and legislators. Emma also recounted the countless of hours of research for the report that included innumerable conversations with the Legislative Fiscal Bureau and other organizations and government departments.
