PPMW is collaborating with The Outrage on an upcoming discussion series where we will be introducing new care capabilities.
A recent poll found that 45 percent of millennials (18 to 29) have no primary care provider.
Nearly one in four transgender D.C. residents chose not to see a doctor when they needed to because of fear of being mistreated, and of those who saw a doctor more than two in five had at least one negative experience.
Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. (PPMW) is proud to introduce its newest suite of high-quality healthcare services, including gender-affirming hormone therapy and primary care, during an upcoming series of expert-led discussions hosted by The Outrage, a womxn-founded hub for activism, using apparel + community to start conversations and connect people with the causes they care about.
PPMW will host a series of expert-led question and answer information sessions exploring gender-affirming care, primary care, political engagement and access to high-quality reproductive healthcare.
The event series will conclude with a networking reception to launch and celebrate the clothing design collaboration between PPMW and The Outrage
