VERY happy to be able to write about and promote Planned Parenthood's brand new location at El Cerrito Plaza, in west county Contra Costa.
It's a beautiful 4-room clinic located in the breezeway in between Joann Fabrics and behind the Wing Stop - which, it turns out, is evidently THE epicenter of after-school hanging-out for area teens. In other words, it couldn't be in a better place.
Clinical hours are half-time (Tuesdays/Thursdays 1:00-5:00) for now (they'll expand to full business hours in the near future) but the phones are always on. Call or stop by for birth control, breast & cervical cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, emergency contraception, and services for men, too!
I got a tour of the new site this morning from center director Rachelle Rohrer, and - what can I say - it was awesome. Spacious, brand-spanking-clean, adorned with interesting artwork, and staffed with people who are way friendlier than I am.
Words do a poor job of describing it, so I shot some video. Check it out and let us know what you think!
