Involving Men in Prevention and Sexual Health
PPNC created the Male Involvement Program to educate young men in the community about their role in the prevention of unplanned pregnancies, STIs and HIV/AIDS. Targeting high school and college-aged males, the program's workshops explore attitudes towards women, gender roles, shared decision-making and stereotyping, in addition to providing honest and comprehensive information on STIs, safer sex behaviors and personal development.
Male participants also receive information about the services available for them at PPNC's health centers. They are encouraged to be involved with their partners' counseling and patient education sessions whenever appropriate.
Testicular Health Workshops
Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting men between the ages of 15 and 35 but it can strike any male at any time.
PPNC is a leading provider of testicular health education on Long Island. Workshops educate young men on the myths and facts about testicular cancer and teach them self-examination skills.
We also train professionals to be able to teach others how to perform testicular self-exams. These trainings include suggestions for activities, tools and supplies to help integrate testicular health into your own health education curriculum.
