    2014 Conference Highlight

    One of the highlights of the 2014 conference was the keynote given by former surgeon general Dr. David Satcher. We are so happy that we were able to film his speech so that everyone can watch it now.

    Thanks to engaging, powerful keynotes like Dr. Satchers and so much more, the 2014 National Sex Ed Conference was an huge success! Thank you to everyone who was a part of that success.
