Sex Education and Public Schools
Tuesday, May 28, 7-8:30pm
Local high-school students and their parents burst out laughing when they hear this phrase. Given the influence of the Religious Right, local public-school sex-education programs continue to withhold critical information about human sexuality from our youth.
Our speaker for the evening is Liana B. Gottlieb, a retired physician's assistant from a local OB/GYN practice.
Ms. Gottlieb, PA-C, will discuss what a good, ethically based sex-education program would look like. She will be drawing not only on decades of clinical experience with reproductive health issues, but also on her experience teaching the Our Whole Lives sex-education program offered by local progressive congregations that believe that accurate information is essential for responsible decision making.
Ms. Gottlieb has previously worked at Planned Parenthood of the Triad from 1983-1988, and at Hawthorne OB/GYN Associates from 1988-2018. She has been a certified physician’s assistant since 1982 and has worked with women’s health issues since 1976. Mrs. Gottlieb graduated from the Bowman Gray School of Medical Physician’s Assistant Program of Wake Forest University in 1982 and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut in 1976.
In addition to routine gynecological and preventive healthcare, some of her special interests were working with adolescents and menopausal women.
Ms. Gottlieb is a member of the American Academy of Physician’s Assistants, Piedmont Association of Physician’s Assistants, and North America Menopausal Society (NAMS).
Families are especially welcome.
The gathering will be held on Tuesday, May 28th, 7-8:30pm, Polo Park Recreation Center, 1850 Polo Road, Winston-Salem, NC 27106
