For the past 13 years, Dr. Melody Noland has partnered with the Postponing Sexual Involvement (PSI) program by incorporating her Health Promotions and Kinesiology students to teach the five-week series to Fayette County middle school students. These college students will become health teachers in public school settings.
Students are trained before teaching and are scheduled by Elayne Hollinger, LFCHD senior health educator. The school’s health teacher and Hollinger are both in each PSI class the university students teach.
Classes are interactive, educational and informative and provide awareness and hands-on practice for participants in the importance of abstaining from sexual involvement.
