Marcella Tillett is a Planned Parenthood goddess
Episode 19 // March 15, 2018: Meet Marcella: She's the VP of Project Street Beat at Planned Parenthood of New York City, and she's pretty rad. At PPNYC, Marcella's team uses mobile health labs to bring critical services, like HIV-preventive care, to people who live and work on the streets. Project Street Beat helps people get tested for STIs, find the right birth control, sign up for health insurance and even find info on affordable housing.
In her spare time, Marcella's a street-style icon (Google her) and a triathlete. Living her best dang life, every day!
