CONCORD, N.H. — A leader of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England is stepping down after 15 years.

Jennifer Frizzell led the public policy and political work of the organization and the Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund. She says she’s taking a professional “sabbatical” to devote more time to her sons and to community involvement.

Friday was Frizzell’s last day. An incoming vice president for public policy will be announced later this month.

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of reproductive and sexual health care for women, men and teens across New Hampshire.
