March Webinar: National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Join the Native Community Health Network in honoring National Native HIV AIDS Awareness Day (NNHAAD). NNHAAD is a national campaign that was founded by Indigenous relatives from Turtle Island, the Northern territories, and the Hawaiian Islands in 2007. Each year NNHAAD is celebrated on March 20th to increase awareness and promote HIV testing in Native communities. This one-hour, interactive webinar will include an overview of the history of NNHAAD, some HIV basics, plus current resources for everything from treatment to prevention for Indigenous relatives amid the pandemic. You can also visit nnhaad.org to learn more about the day!
The first in a series of courses developed by sex educators at the Responsible Sex Education Institute, the Virtual Sexual Health Educator Program 1.0 takes our most popular live lessons and transforms them into a 4 or 5-week virtual course. Each cohort is limited to 15 participants to ensure that we can hear from everyone. Registrants can expect 1 hour of “on-your-own” learning per week in addition to the twice-weekly live sessions.
April Webinar: Recognizing and Confronting Medical Mistrust Among BIPOC
As we actively aim to provide quality sex education and healthcare to communities of all backgrounds, we need to fully understand the systemic origins of current health disparities experienced by people of color. Serving as an effective youth-serving adult involves acknowledging your role in the inequitable outcomes for students of color. We will examine the historical context for the current medical mistrust, how present-day healthcare delivery contributes to medical bias, the value of cultural humility, and programs aimed to support these communities. We challenge youth-serving adults to reflect on the messages they communicate to better promote dignity in accessing care.
