Findings of Youth Sexual Health Project 10/21

The Committee on Health (CM Catania, At-large, chair) has just announced a public oversight roundtable on Presentation of Findings of the Youth Sexual Health Project.   The roundtable is being held on October 21 at 11:00 am in the Council Chamber of the JAWB.

The purpose of this roundtable is to hear a presentation about the Youth Sexual Health Project and its resulting report, A Youth-Inspired Sexual Health Framework.   (Check out the preliminary findings.)   The Youth Sexual Health Project is a result of a partnership between Chairman Vincent C. Gray and Committee Chair David A. Catania to produce a framework for youth sexual health education and promotion in the District of Columbia based on guidance from the District youth themselves.   This hearing will be open to the public; however, only invited witnesses will be permitted to provide oral statements.
