It’s often hard to talk about sex with a partner, parent, or healthcare provider, but it is essential that young people are empowered to talk about and take control of their sexual health. Join us for a discussion with the Howard County Health Department’s Reproductive Health Program Supervisor Jenna Mermer and student intern Emma Schreier as we talk about sexual health, things to think about before you have sex, consent, safer sex, birth control, and a walkthrough of a visit to the reproductive health clinic.
Although we are in isolation, we don't have to be disconnected from one another. In this episode, we will provide tips for teens on how to stay socially connected while physically distant. You will hear about creative ways to communicate, join clubs, as well as how other students are feeling in these times.
