Southeast Area Farmer’s Market, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays at MLK Jr. Park. Bridge Cards, Double Up Food Bucks and WIC Welcome!
On Saturday July 21, staff from Grand Rapids’ Planned Parenthood Irwin/Martin Health Center will table at the market, providing information about the full range of affordable services that they offer area residents with or without health insurance.
Did you know that in addition to helping with women’s healthcare and contraception, the health center offers general healthcare, HIV testing, LGBT services, men’s healthcare, pregnancy testing and services and more?
In addition, Planned Parenthood’s trained educators offer comprehensive sex education that helps youth and others learn about sex and sexuality, explore values and beliefs about those topics ,and gain the skills that help them make healthy choices despite bullying or peer pressure. Statistics have proven that comprehensive sex education is more effective than abstinence only programs in reducing teen pregnancies, abortions and STD rates.
OKT is proud to stand with Planned Parenthood!
