Highlighting 12 Months of Health in 2017

Planned Parenthood is a trusted resource for affordable, expert healthcare. Throughout 2017, we want to be sure Texans know that Planned Parenthood is their go-to source for a wide range of healthcare services for women and men.

Planned Parenthood 2017: Your Partner for a Healthy Community is a year-long campaign to increase awareness of critical health issues for the wide range of patients served by Planned Parenthood’s expert healthcare staff.

Each month, Planned Parenthood will highlight a critical health issue, from Cervical Health to Men’s Health Services. This will include information on reproductive and preventive health services, including potentially lifesaving screenings for breast and cervical cancer, treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and HIV testing.

The campaign will provide answers, advice, and resources through a variety of media, including digital media, printed materials, health center outreach, and more.
