“Ask Dr. Christine”: An interactive discussion on reproductive and sexual health

At a special event on February 23, women in Hudson, New York were invited to ask whatever questions they had about reproductive and sexual health. The Women’s Health Project invited them to participate in an interactive discussion with Dr. Christine Pluviose, Vice President for Patient Services at Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood. The free event took place in the community room at Bliss Towers.

The participants also received free supplies, information, food, and had a chance to win a drawing for a supermarket gift card. They also had the opportunity to Sign up for “Ladies Night Out” at Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood, which took place the following Thursday, and to participate in research interviews for a $25 participation payment.

“Ask Dr. Christine” was co-sponsored by the Women’s Health Project and UHPP. It was the seventeenth in a series of free health events offered by the Women’s Health Project, a community-based initiative of the Center for the Elimination of Minority Health Disparities at the University at Albany.
