Training Institute

The Training Institute at Planned Parenthood of Greater New York provides high-quality training on sexual and reproductive health topics. 

Join our email list for training announcements and updates.

The health and safety of our community is of utmost importance to us. 

In light of growing concerns surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Planned Parenthood of Greater New York is cancelling currently scheduled Training Institute trainings in March and April. We will be reaching out to registrants with additional information on next steps.  

Planned Parenthood of Greater New York health centers remain open and staff are taking necessary precautions to protect our patients’ and staff members’ safety in light of the Coronavirus.  

You can support your community and clients by keeping current, sharing facts, and responding to misinformation. Obtain information from trusted sources like local and state health departments. We also want to lift up that xenophobia and racism have no place in our community. All are welcome here.
