UO recognized for its student sexual health programs

The UO’s efforts to keep students healthy and safe were cited as an example of universities that are doing it right in a recent article in Inside Higher Education.

Citing an alarming increase in sexually transmitted diseases among young people, the article singled out programs at the UO Health Center as among those using best practices for helping students protect their sexual health. It spotlighted new screening and testing clinics for sexually transmitted diseases that are booked two weeks in advance and the easy access to safe sex supplies, such as condoms.

It also pointed to the six peer educators who help educate students living in residence halls, fraternities and sororities on the topic of sexual health.
