Aimee Quadri: Here to help

Advertisement

In today's struggling economy, preventive services and affordable health care are more important than ever to ensure that woman and their families in need of health care services do not go underserved.

As health center manager at the Steamboat Springs Planned Parenthood, I'd like to remind the people of Routt County that we are here to serve the community.

We know the importance and value of preventive care. That's what we do every day when we provide services such as annual exams, breast exams, referrals for free or low-cost mammograms, STD testing, all birth-control methods (including emergency contraception), pregnancy testing, HPV vaccinations and more.

All of our services are available on a walk-in basis or by calling 970-879-2212 to make an appointment.

American women and their families are struggling not only with job loss but also with loss of health insurance and access to affordable basic health care.

As purse strings tighten, many people are being forced to decide between putting food on the table and paying for a visit to the doctor. Planned Parenthood can help make these decisions less difficult.

Our health center accepts private insurance and Medicaid. For those paying out-of-pocket, we aim to keep our prices affordable. We also have grants and funding available for those who financially qualify in all age groups.

As a leading reproductive health care advocate and provider, the community's well-being is a daily priority for Planned Parenthood, and this focus will not waiver even in times of economic woe.
