February Update from Heather & Kate

2010 numbers are in! Client contacts and options support bookings both increased considerably in the past year. The closure of the Sexual Health Centre for renovations is likely one cause of the increase in client contacts in the fall. The fact that PPO is now offering free pregnancy tests has also had a noticeable impact on the number of client contacts.

In other news, PPO’s new fundraising committee hit the ground running at its first official meeting in January—we’re fortunate to have a talented group and a strong committee chair in board member Danielle Leguard White.

Last but (of course) not least, Diane Meronyk is a midwifery student who is spending a month with PPO. Diane has already produced a new PPO resource on Sex during Pregnancy and Postpartum and she will be presenting a workshop on the same topic at Venus Envy on Friday February 25th from 7-9. The workshop will also feature PPO board member Andrea Proulx, N.D., providing a *bonus* section on naturopathy during pregnancy.  

If you can’t make it out to the workshop then we’ll see you at the Sexual Overtones show on March 12th! Click here for the details.

Warmly,
Kate (Board President) and Heather (Executive Director)
