CDC strikes again

Recommended Posts

So April is apparently std awareness month. At the gym at my school there's an info table set out with candy and condoms. Awesome. And information. Even better. So I look over the CDC developed signage on the most common stds: chlamydia, gonorrhea, hpv, and one other (I'm drawing a blank in my seething anger). Guess what's missing??? Yeah big surprise. No mention of herpes. Wtf???? I mentioned to the young women that the info was missing the second most common std. They had no clue. which is in and of itself wired to me. If you're running an info table you should probably know this. But mostly I was just pissed at the cdc for again failing to acknowledge the issue.

Yeah - it seems like they just wish it would go away so they don't have to deal with it ... So what did they say at the table? and could you get the contact info of the people who arrange these things? Maybe you could get involved with making sure that all the info is properly up to date before they set those things up :/


You can always print out the handouts from here too and give it to them to give out :)

They really weren't quite sure what to say. I think it surprised them that I said anything. I thanked them for being there as I wouldn't want people not to be involved. I like the idea of contacting the organizers. I don't know who it is but i can easily find out.
