Upcoming Events: YWTF DC

February Membership Meeting & Discussion:
“A Reproductive Health Refresher Course”
Thursday, February 17, 6:30pm
Offices of the YWCA of the National Capital Area
624 9th Street, NW
Whether you haven’t had a health class since high school or you’re a reproductive health advocate, we could all use a refresher course on what we as young women can be doing to protect our reproductive health.  And there’s always new information to learn about things like the HPV vaccine and the latest in contraceptive options. Join us for an informal discussion led by Soraya Galeas, Director of Community Education for Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington. Bring your questions, share your experiences, and learn from both an expert in the field and from one another.

If you’ve never seen the “Monologues,” or if you’ve seen it a dozen times, please join us for a fun evening to support a great cause! Email YWTFDC to let us know you’d like to come along and get details on how to meet up with us.  (For those who are able to meet earlier, we’ll be getting together for dinner before the performance as well.)
