GCAPP is excited to host its annual Sex Ed Summit, a two-part series tackling two important topics—teens/pre-teens and HPV, and the sex ed landscape in Georgia, post ROE. Who should attend? Parents, youth serving professionals, young people, and anyone who wants expert knowledge about these emerging issues.
We’re partnering with Door Dash to give the first 100 people to register for the Sex Ed Summit a $15 Door Dash gift card, after attending the summit.
12:00 – 1:00, in partnership with Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute
The primary focus of the 2022 Summit is on educating young people, parents, and youth-serving professionals on HPV (human papillomavirus) for preteens and teens. Through an interactive panel with doctors of various specialties, the opening session of the Summit will provide information on HPV transmission, prevention, the impact of HPV on the body, and information about the vaccine and how parents can get their child vaccinated against HPV. Bring your questions for the Q&A following the panel.

Comprehensive sex ed and quality teen pregnancy prevention programs are more important than ever for young people, post Roe v. Wade. Part 2 of the Sex Ed Summit will delve into the sex ed landscape. How does Georgia stack up? What are the collective efforts to get young people the prevention programs and knowledge they need and deserve? What programs work? We hope you can join us!
