Akia, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and Manager at Planned Parenthood in Brooklyn Park, recently told us:

I did my clinic rotation at the Minneapolis clinic three years ago, and I fell in love with the patients, the environment, the education, and uncovered my passion for working with young women and caring for them. Now that I’m working for Planned Parenthood, I have been so amazed at what is offered and how great of an organization it is. What we do here is such a major accomplishment toward overcoming barriers and helping to reduce teenage pregnancy.

My patients motivate me. Throughout my schooling and training and the more I work here, I see that these women and men need providers like us to guide and educate them on reproductive and sexual health!

If someone was nervous about coming to Planned Parenthood, I would tell them, “Come on in, you will get nonjudgmental, unbiased care in a safe and secure environment with compassionate, supportive, and helpful staff! We will make sure you leave our doors well informed and feeling independent and relieved about the care you received."
