"Two-thirds of adolescents...46% of teens...one in six youth..." Understanding current adolescent sexual health data and statistics is a core part of our work as professionals. In this workshop, participants will review the most current statistics on the sexual health of Minnesota youth, including pregnancy, birth and STI statistics, trends in adolescent pregnancy and sexual behaviors, and how Minnesota measures up regionally and nationally. Each participant will gain a basic understanding of current data and statistics and how to use this information in your work to support the sexual health of Minnesota adolescents.

Forty-nine percent of boys have had sexual intercourse by the time they finish high school. One in four has an STD. Yet sexuality education by and large still focuses on the needs of girls. How do we teach in ways that resonate with all students, regardless of their gender? Answer's latest online workshop can help. Understand how boys think, feel and learn about sexuality, and learn the necessary tools for teaching in ways that resonate specifically with them. Click here to register.

Minnesota AIDS Project
1400 Park Avenue, Minneapolis
Each year the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) releases data about new infection rates of HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted infections in Minnesota. The speaker, Jessica Brehmer, HIV/AIDS Epidemiologist from MDH, will be giving us the "who, what, when and where" of the spread of these infections. For people who are involved in HIV prevention and outreach, knowing the population of people becoming infected can help better target those who are at risk. For providers working with those living with HIV, this data provides insight into the common co-infections the client may experience. Cost is $10. RSVP to Bonnie Rossow at 612-373-2449 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
