Where There is a Need, There is a Way: Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Will Offer Services to the Redwood City Community Through a Mobile Medical Van
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM) is pleased to announce that beginning today, Tuesday, December 13, 2011 we will provide preventive health care services for the community in Redwood City through a mobile medical van stationed at 2500 Middlefield Road.
The services offered through the van are contraceptive services, including emergency contraception, pregnancy tests, STI testing and treatment and HIV testing. Anyone interested in making an appointment or receiving more information can call 1-877-855-7526.
This new location will also be a source of educational resources for the community, providing services to help families plan their pregnancies and tools for families to increase communication about sexual health. PPMM is already working in the area to provide youth development and educational services.
The Health Plan of San Mateo and the San Mateo County Health System are in strong support of the opening of this new site to address the unmet need for preventive and primary care in this region. We are proud to be able to offer our services in an area that faces great need, and we want to thank the local residents who have extended a warm welcome and been champions of our mission.
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte exists to ensure that every individual has the knowledge, opportunity, and freedom to make every child a wanted child and every family a healthy family. We look forward to working with the people of Redwood City to achieve this goal.
