Where We Build: Overcoming Barriers and Accessing Care

Monday, February 20, 2017 -
4:10pm to 6:10pm

The fourth of five workshops facilitated by YWCA Clark County and Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette. 

We all have the right to access care to address our physical and emotional health needs, and to advocate for our needs and those of others. This workshop will explore: How do sexuality and gender impact access to care? What skills can I utilize to act as a self-advocate or to advocate for others? How can I access health care services and how can I overcome barriers to accessing care? What resources exist in our community and how can I access them?

Where We Build gives participants the knowledge and skills they need to help create the world they want to see.

The final workshop will be held February 27. Students who attend all sessions may be eligible to participate in volunteer and internship opportunities with Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette and YWCA Clark County.

Free and open to WSU Vancouver students. Food provided.
