STD Awareness Month -- April 2009

We are in the middle of STD awareness month, which means we should all probably take a few minutes and do just that: be aware. The observance of STD awareness month is intended to normalize STD testing and conversations about sexual health.

Healthy Youth Act North Carolina

If you have not already heard about the proposed legislation called the Healthy Youth Act, which would mandate a two-track system for sexuality education in North Carolina, you should look it up to read all the details. The two tracks would be abstinence-only until marriage (the current standard) and abstinence-based comprehensive sex education. This program would allow parents to decide which track their children will take. I think this legislation, if passed, will be an important step towards  reducing the high amont of disease and unwanted pregnency among youth in North Carolina.
