Prom-versations: Conversations about Prom Night
Video Lesson | Available April 8th | $15
Prom has been an event for high school students for years. Prom night festivities vary across the nation, but movies, TV shows, and societal tropes have created expectations about what will happen when the night finally arrives. In this training, trusted adults will learn how to have conversations with high school-aged youth surrounding the “expectations” of prom night.
From panda porn to barbed penises to mating habits, Lindsay Vansandt, Theriogenologist from the Lindner Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will entertain our audience with an open discussion on animal sexual behavior and reproduction.
Research has shown in the U.S., Black pregnant women are three to four times more likely to die from complications during pregnancy compared to white women (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). This is a critical issue in the communities that Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio serve. So we're asking what needs to change?
Joining us to discuss Black maternal health is Meredith Shockley Smith, Director of Equity and Community Strategies at Cradle Cincinnati. Through this event, we hope to amplify Black voices and discuss access to critical screenings and preventive care.
May is International Doula Month. As a celebration, we're honoring all the different types of doulas that work around the world by hosting a panel discussion. Through the panel, participants will be able to ask questions while exploring the roles of various doulas present, learn about doula history and listen to their stories and experiences that shape the valuable work doula's do.
