The Spirit of giving has arrived in Tennessee!

It’s that time of year for good friends, good cheer, and great gifts; but nothing is worth more than your good health - Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee understands that.

This year, during the month of December, PPMET is helping give you the gift of good health by offering FREE reproductive health screenings and services!

Yes, you read it correctly: FREE! So, no more pondering, putting off or procrastinating! NOW is the time to come to Planned Parenthood. Knowledge is power, but free power is even better!
