In an effort to educate students about the high rates of teen births and sexually transmitted diseases in Galveston County, this two-phased project is aimed at providing evidence-based, nurse-led family life and sexual health education for select fifth-graders in Galveston County. UTMB nurse clinicians and nursing students will teach the Family Life and Sexual Health (FLASH) curriculum to a select group of students who have parental consent to participate in the program. FLASH includes units on family, self-esteem, gender roles, puberty, pregnancy and much more.
