Thank you to everyone who came out in support of the Second Annual Ohio Sex Education Summit — A Community Convening on Sexual Health Education and Health Equity, presented by the Ohio Center for Sex Education at Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio. 

This year's summit took place on Friday, October 11, 2019 at Cuyahoga Community College Corporate College East (4400 Richmond St., Warrensville Heights, OH 44128).

The summit brought together community members, educators, public health and medical professionals, elected officials, and activists together for a day of learning and conversation surrounding sexual health education.

Highlighting achievements while lifting up opportunities for growth, the summit created a diverse and inclusive atmosphere in which we could critically examine the importance of the intersection of individual and community identities as they inform sexual health education.
