Strengthening the City’s Sexual Health Clinics

BY DR. MARY T. BASSETT | Sexual health clinics in New York City hold a puzzling place in the public imagination. Are they places to get free condoms? Pregnancy exams? Blood tests? To give you a better picture, I want to share the story of a man from Harlem who visited the Riverside clinic, on […]

Women Rising?

BY KELLY COGSWELL | I’m back in France, and about the time Donald Trump was taking the oath of office in the rain, I was trapped on a bus in the dark going around in circles.
