October 19, 2011 Community Event

Women’s Reproductive Health

A special Women’s Health Project event on the subject of women’s reproductive health was held from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. October 19, 2011 at Bliss Towers Community Room. The event, a collaboration of the Women’s Health Project and Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood (UHPP), enabled attendees to learn about birth control and family planning, sexually transmitted infections and safer sex, breast and cervical cancer screening, and UHPP services. They were also able to schedule clinic appointments and obtain taxi vouchers for transportation to those appointments.

In addition to learning about reproductive health information, the attendees enjoyed playing Wheel of Knowledge for prizes, and supermarket gift card drawings.

The event was one of 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.
