This is an interactive, adolescent-led workshop that is focused on the nurse and healthcare practitioner's perspective, but is relevant to the entire campus community. Among other populations, it highlights the importance of youth and people of gender and sexual minorities (LGBTQ and others) having access to healthcare. It provides information about confidentiality, youth rights, clarifying values and biases about sexual orientation, basic terms and concepts about sexuality and gender, and effective tools for communicating with young people about their sexual health.
