Safer Sex is Super Week
Nov 19, 2018 by Carissa Ruf
In recognition of World AIDS Day, the Office of Health Promotion is hosting our annual Safer Sex is Super Week from Monday, November 26th - Saturday, December 1st. World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV, and remember those who have died from HIV/AIDS. Started in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
Our goal is to provide you with resources and information on safer sex practices! Safer sex supplies and Choosing to Abstain kits will be available all week. Be sure to stop by during our daily events on campus (including Safer Sex Olympics and Sex Toy Bingo) to purchase a safer sex themed chocolate lollipop (benefiting Planned Parenthood) and for the chance to receive a FREE T-SHIRT while supplies last!

Did you know STI’s are more likely to be contracted from the ages 15-24? Or that almost every sexually active person can contract HPV at some point in their lifetime? At this event the Office of Health Promotion will be educating students on the symptoms of various STI’s, prevalence of HPV among college aged students as well as how to properly protect themselves against STI’s. Together, we have the power to continue to educate the campus community on STI’s, and we will be able to effectively combat them. Superheroes need to be protected and so do you, so come join us!
