A charitable individual who divides her time between Manhattan in New York and Bucks County in Pennsylvania, Dr. Beth Grosshans supports several nonprofit organizations, including Planned Parenthood.
Founded more than 100 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, Planned Parenthood supports women’s health by offering information and treatment related to sex, health, and family planning. The New York City branch (PPNYC) opened in 1923 with additional facilities opening in the Bronx and another in Manhattan in 1930. Over the years, the organization has established centers in all of New York’s boroughs, the most recent one opening in Long Island in 2015.
In March 2016, the PPNYC announced that social workers could earn continuing education credits through its training institute, which offers courses on sexual and reproductive health. The New York State Education Department’s State Board for Social Work chose PPNYC to provide credit for licensed master social workers (LMSWs) and licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) in the state. It also offers credit for certified health education specialists (CHES).
