The Relationship Of Sexual Health Education And Sexual Health Risk Behavioral Outcomes Among Florida Teens, Brandon Moton, Rima Tawk 2019 University of North Florida

The Relationship Of Sexual Health Education And Sexual Health Risk Behavioral Outcomes Among Florida Teens, Brandon Moton, Rima Tawk

Florida Public Health Review

We examined the relationship between sexual health education and sexual health risk behavioral outcomes among adolescents in Florida using Youth Risk Behavior Survey data from 2001 to 2013. Sexual health risk behavioral outcomes (reported condom use and alcohol and/or drug use during last intercourse) were first examined as a function of sexual health education. Multiple logistic regression analysis was then used to adjust for individual characteristics and behavioral risk factors when associating sexual health education with sexual health risk behavioral outcomes. Reported condom use was strongly associated with sexual education. However, the impact of sexual education was attenuated after ...

Keys to this balance include time management, flexibility, self-care, and frequent reflection of goals and priorities. Whereas they are demanding, the challenges of this balance also keep life vibrant and rewarding.

Florida Public Health Review

Two years ago, students prepared commentaries about why they were (or were not) worried about their future as public health professionals, and four of these short essays were published in the Florida Public Health Review ...
