The following proposal outlines a plan to implement a focused outreach event to train Boston area leaders who work with teens to learn about HPV and other STDs and how to evaluate online health information for accuracy. Goal of Just Look It Up Event: To improve knowledge, attitude and comfort levels of Boston youth program leaders, school health educators, health care providers, community health workers, and family members in being able to talk about and provide guidance about sexual health and where to find credible answers online for questions about sexual health.
