Guest Webinar; TECHNOLOGY-BASED SEX SEEKING: AN OVERVIEW FOR HEALTH USE @ Web-based
Jul 27 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

For more on technology and how it can be used in prevention, join Myself and Rachel Kachur for a webinar on an overview of technology-based sex seeking. It will be held on July 27, 2015. For more info and to register, click here

For over 10 years, the internet has been recognized as a venue where sex seeking occurs and sexual encounters are negotiated and planned. More recently, mobile apps have emerged as venues where the same sex seeking behaviors occur but with more efficiency and speed.

The Coordinators for the National Internet Partner Services Workgroup, Frank Strona and Rachel Kachur, both long time specialists in social networks and Internet-based sexual health solutions,  will provide an overview of technology-based sex seeking including popular sex seeking websites and mobile apps, how they work, the populations using them and how the public health community can use these sites/apps for disease control and prevention. They will also highlight common features of several smart-device applications as well as introduce strategies and experiences for considering the use of geo-locating apps, such as Grindr, as a way to better reach populations of men who have sex with men.

Participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the various populations that are using technology for sex seeking
  • Describe the basic features of popular sex seeking websites and mobile apps
  • Explain the differences between the types of sites that are used for sex seeking (Social networking vs. dating vs. sex seeking)
  • Identify the ways in which CDC can provide technical assistance for technology-based prevention programs

We will end with a Question & Answer session along with an overview of how your health department can get free assistance on building capacity in high impact HIV prevention. We encourage everyone to follow along and ask questions on Twitter using the hashtag #TechTalkSF.

It Starts with You: LGBT-Inclusive Sex Education Webinar @SOPHE
May 3 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Webinar alert! It Starts with You: LGBT-Inclusive Sex Education. Wednesday, May 3, 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT

Although the LGBT community has come a long way in the fight for equality, education still hasn’t caught up. Sex Education programs need to be LGBT inclusive so that LGBT youth can be in a learning environment where they feel safe and supported by their peers and teachers. Implementing comprehensive and inclusive sex education has been proven to positively impact the attitudes and sexual behaviors of both LGBT and heterosexual students. http://bit.ly/2q7QzzU
