Adulting 101: Health and Sexuality
Saturday, August 19th, 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. - Struble Room
Let's be honest- this isn't the easiest topic to talk about. Maybe you're asking yourself why adults would even need relationship or sexual health education? You can have the best school sexuality curriculum, but many topics adults face often go unaddressed- like building healthy long-term relationships, growing intimacy, understanding one's fertility, learning about the importance of consent, rectifying common misconceptions about sex, and hearing about helpful resources in your community - from finding out where to receive help if you're experiencing relationship violence, if you need STD testing, if you're seeking counseling, or whether you want to learn about the types of birth control available. Join us as experienced Sexuality Educator Lisa Fraser M.Ed, Associate Director of Education with Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, presents on a variety of topics, and answers questions you may have. This program is for adults aged 18+. Registration is required, so don't forget to register online.
