Strong Women: The Women Behind WeARE Clinic in Brainerd

We've been producing our Strong Women series on KAXE/KBXE for about a year now.  Interviews with women who are elected officials, mothers with extraordinary stories, authors and women who work hard and are passionate about their work. 

Our latest story is from Brainerd.  Last spring we were in Brainerd for our Community Advisory Board meeting and we asked what stories we should tell from that region.  WeARE was mentioned numerous times and now, we present you this conversation from a group of dedicated women who have started a grassroots clinic for reproductive education in Crow Wing County - which is in the top 10 of MN's 87 counties for teen pregnancy rates.  Listen here to find out why that is, and what they are doing in their community.  These are the Strong Women of WeARE Clinic in Brainerd.
