April Is STD Awareness Month

Posted on April 23, 2012 by


From the CDC’s website:

April is STD Awareness Month, an annual observance to raise public awareness about the impact of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) on the lives of Americans and the importance of preventing, testing for, and treating STDs. It is an opportunity to normalize routine STD testing and conversations about sexual health.

I saw a billboard for this is my city yesterday and was a bit confused. Is there anyone over the age of thirteen who has attended a public school, and is unaware of STD’s?

Just in case, consider yourselves aware.
