TULSA, OKLA – [January 29, 2024] – The Tulsa Health Department is hosting a series of town halls to promote sexual health awareness for women in Tulsa County between the ages of 18 to 42. The “Treat Me Right: Stop the Rise of STIs” town halls are designed to facilitate meaningful conversations around sexually transmitted infections and gather feedback on how THD can actively aid in the reduction of sexually transmitted infections in Tulsa County.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in five Americans have a sexually transmitted infection at any given time. THD received a syphilis reduction grant from the National Association of County and City Health Officials to support this project.
There are three opportunities to attend:
- Wednesday, January 31 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
- Rudisill Regional Library | 1520 N Hartford Ave Tulsa, OK 74106
- Thursday, February 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This session will be conducted only in Spanish
- Martin Regional Library | 2601 S Garnett Rd Tulsa, OK 74129
- Thursday, February 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
- Central Library | 400 Civic Center Tulsa, OK 74103
The town halls are free to attend and the February 15 session will be conducted only in Spanish. Light refreshments will be provided. Registration is encouraged but not required.
Findings from the town halls will help aid in the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including syphilis and congenital syphilis. This project aligns with the goals of the Tulsa Fetal and Infant Mortality Review project, which brings together community members together to examine and improve the social, economic, safety, cultural and health system factors that impact infant mortality.
