"I hope to bring my experiences as an academic and community-based researcher and advocate of sexual and reproductive health to PPGP to continue the work of fulfilling the mission.

In addition, Hill has a long history with Planned Parenthood serving as a clinic counselor in family planning and gynecology at Planned Parenthood of Indiana, conducting patient-centered research with Planned Parenthood of Illinois, and as an outspoken supporter of Planned Parenthood's health services, educational programs, and advocacy efforts throughout his career.

"As a national expert on sexual and reproductive health, Brandon has a deep understanding of providing services in an ever-changing health care environment and a political landscape hostile to women's health and inclusive comprehensive health care for all."
