GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- The Planned Parenthood offices in Grand Rapids are hosting a pizza party for local teens Tuesday to promote safe sex.
During the month of April, Planned Parenthood has been involved in a nation-wide effort to spread sexual health awareness among young people. The Get Yourself Tested campaign was organized in response to the growing number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S.
Planned Parenthood participates in the campaign by providing low-cost STD screening packages, which test for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HIV. Those tests are available at all Planned Parenthood locations.
Tuesday, at the Grand Rapids Planned Parenthood offices, teens can stop by for free pizza and plenty of information regarding safe sex practices.
That party is going on from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at 425 Cherry Street SE in Grand Rapids.
