An Educational Program to Combat Venereal Disease.
Dotterweich, Andrew H., Jr.
The purpose of this practicum was to develop, implement, and evaluate an educational program to combat venereal disease. The objectives of the program were: (1) to increase public awareness of the problem of venereal disease, (2) to alert parents and students to the dangers of venereal disease, (3) to enable students to make rational judgments about their own conduct in terms of their knowledge of venereal disease, and (4) to provide assistance for those who had contracted venereal disease and who needed medical attention. The educational aspect of the program included community meetings for parents, a publicity campaign by newspaper and radio, free literature, and instruction in the public high school. Biology teachers, social studies teachers, and the school nurse participated in the instructional activities. A total of 468 students and 110 parents completed evaluation forms. In addition, the evaluations of teachers and the program chairman are included in this report. (Author/CP)
