7/17/2015; 23 minutes

This month's guest on The Pulse, Issues in Healthcare is Nora Vargas, who grew up in Tijuana and became the first Latina vice president at Planned Parenthood in 2001. She describes her "amazing journey," starting as a volunteer at the organization more than 20 years ago. She assumed her current post in 2008, overseeing education and public affairs initiatives in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties, as well as in a binational program with Mexico. Vargas shares her insights about working at an organization where employees bring passion to a wide variety of positions in education, healthcare delivery and administration, and points out that one in five women relies on Planned Parenthood for birth control and reproductive health services.
