About the Organization
Founded in 1974, CHOICES is an independent, non-profit community health center that provides comprehensive reproductive health care to women, men and teens. Our clinicians train medical students and advanced nurse practitioners, and provide training for clinicians in fertility options for persons living with HIV, and
on integrating HIV services with reproductive health care services. Our goal is to transform the way reproductive health care is perceived and provided in our community. CHOICES commitment to a patient-centered practice is one of the distinguishing characteristics of our feminist model of health care, and we are proud to continue providing comprehensive reproductive health services in a safe environment and with respect for individual beliefs. Choices does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, body size, religion, cultural heritage, or disability.
