Sex Education in Schools
Local physicians go into schools and educate youth on risks that come with sex, rates of teen pregnancy and STDs drop dramatically.
When we talk about youth, we had the highest rate of gonorrhea and chlamydia in the community [and] we had the high pregnancy rate. Now we don’t even make the list anymore. So that was a huge success. [We changed that by] Going into schools. Educating. Spending time, sitting down with the youth, talking to them, not scaring them.
