Recent article

Angela Townsend of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on September 1, 2009 how health services at several area colleges are responding to the sexual health needs of their students.  Practitioners at student health clinics noted an increased demand for sexual health services over time.

It was interesting to note that although both males and females seemed to be increasing their use of school sexual health services, at least one practitioner commented that males use the services far less frequently than females.
