Claire Keyes

Claire Keyes was the director of Allegheny Reproductive Health in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for more than 30 years until her retirement. Her background and training were in counseling and psychotherapy, which deeply informed her work with women and families at the clinic. Her particular interests in clinic services included integrating patients’ partners and spirituality into their visit when patients so requested. She now works on occasional abortion-related projects and has welcomed this opportunity to honor her beloved medical director, Dr. Morris Turner, whom she misses so very much.
