This November, Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak will share her unconventional path toward her current role as the first physician to ever lead Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts in its history.
Dr. Childs-Roshak was raised in New Hampshire as one of five children. Throughout her career, she’s observed a shift in our society as people move away from their homes and families, creating an even stronger need to build a community wherever you land. She believes in focusing on what you can control in life and what keeps you motivated each and every day. For Dr. Childs-Roshak, that includes family and community, as well as providing services, one person at a time, and one day at a time.
When: Wednesday, November 29th
