November 13, 2014 – Free Presentation on November 25 by Peterborough Healthy Families Hosts Dr. Rosana Salvaterra

Peterborough Healthy Families invites everyone, especially parents of teenagers, to a special presentation on Tuesday, November 25 entitled “Let’s Talk About Sex: Talking With Your Teen”.

Featuring Diane Lockman, Public Health Nurse and Dr. Rosana Salvaterra, Medical Officer of Health from Peterborough Public Health, the presentation will cover birth control, sexually-transmitted infections, vaccines and healthy relationships.  The talk will be fun and participatory to make it easier to discuss what can be a touchy subject.

“Talking with your teen about sex can be a challenge, and we want parents to know there’s lots of support out there for them,” said Dr. Salvaterra.  “We hope to make this evening fun and interactive so parents gain the knowledge and approaches they need to make sexuality conversations feel more natural.”

This free presentation takes place on Tuesday, November 25 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Peterborough Public Library on 345 Aylmer St. N.  Light refreshments are provided. For further information, please call Public Health at 705-743-1000.
