MDI Hospital’s Lisa Stewart Women's Health Center is pleased to welcome back Al Vernacchio, M.S. Ed.

Date and Time: 03/23/2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

MDI Hospital’s Lisa Stewart Women's Health Center is pleased to welcome back Al Vernacchio, M.S. Ed., sexuality educator, consultant and TED speaker on Monday, March 23rd from 6:30 - 8:00 pm at the Wolf Conference Center located on the 2nd floor of the Center.

This year, Mr. Vernacchio will present a new lecture, "FOR GOODNESS SEX: Changing the Way We Talk to Teens About Sexuality, Values, and Health.

This presentation is aimed to provide parents with the tools and insights they need to create a better dialogue with their kids about sexuality and to help teens develop healthy values and safe habits.

Vernacchio will address some issues that parents may find tough to get a handle on when talking to their kids about sex, including:

  • how to think more thoughtfully about sexuality and help them think outside the “rounding the bases” model
  • how to teach kids what it means to respect their bodies and develop healthy body images
  • how to convey that sexuality is a necessary and normal part of human life  
  • how to create and convey family values about sex
  • how to teach kids about the role of privacy and technology—including texting and social media—as it relates to their intimate lives
  • how to help kids step out of old and new gender stereotypes
  • how to convey the truth about pregnancy, STDs, and what can happen when you have sex—without relying on scare-tactics
This event is free and open to the public, and a book signing will be held after the presentation. For more information, contact the Lisa Stewart Women's Health Center at 288-8100.
