Sexual Health Carnival.
Sexual Health Carnival
University Health and Counseling Services is excited for our first-ever Sexual Health Carnival from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the Ambrose Health Center. While sexual health can be uncomfortable to discuss, this sex ed for the college student is an opportunity to come and learn — no need to ask anything. We’ll have a variety of information on important topics that impact students as well as resources. Several community partners will participate as well. Come walk through the health clinic at UHCS to learn — and ask questions if you want — and then go out back to enjoy some carnival popcorn, candy and games and to see real miniature horses! All participants will receive a coupon for a free Culver’s frozen custard. This is an event you don’t want to miss!
