Let's Talk About Sexual Health
Talking about sex may not be a regular part of your doctor-patient relationship, but it should be. This can be especially true for adolescents and young adults who are disproportionately impacted by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Nearly half of all new STD cases are in young people between the ages of 15 and 24. This video discusses the importance of a healthy dialogue between youth and providers concerning their sexual health, and features CDC Epidemiologist, Elizabeth Torrone, PhD MSPH. (November 30, 2012)
The videos below, produced by Be Smart Be Well in 2010, raise awareness of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs):
- What are they?
- Why do they matter? and,
