The federal government awarded $10 million over five years to the Health Science Center to continue an innovative sex education program in the regionís schools. The Sex Education Program, directed by Kristen Plastino, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology, focuses on education to community stakeholders at all levels, providing medically accurate, age-appropriate information to support teens to make healthy decisions. The new funding will allow the program to integrate services, programs and strategies through community-wide initiatives and increase saturation to high school students with the goal of increasing healthy decision-making and decreasing pregnancy among 14- to 19-year-olds.
