Spread Information, Not Stigma

Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 4:30pm to 5:45pm

45 West 10th Street Apt. 3F, Lorain OH

STIs are common among sexually active people and many do not cause serious health risks, especially if caught early. Unlike other infections, sexually transmitted infections often carry a lot of stigma, which may make them hard to talk about. 

Share your story to help fight stigma that prevents people from getting tested and sharing their statuses!

Part I: WEDNESDAY May, 1st 4:30 Wilder TBA
We will talk about what misconceptions contribute to STI stigma, and outline some ways to make sex safer.

Part II: THURSDAY May 2nd, 4:30 Wilder TBA
We will hear from students about personal experiences with STI stigma at Oberlin and discuss ways we can attempt to reduce STI stigma!
