Consortium to Make a Splash at National Sex Ed Conference

It started with a single workshop by Consortium founder Peggy Brick several years ago, and this year, sexuality and aging will be addressed in four sessions at the 2012 National Sex Ed Conference, Nov. 28-30, in Somerset NJ.

Six Consortium members will present at the conference, including conference co-chair Susan Milstein and host Bill Taverner,  executive director of the Center for Family Life Education, which sponsors the conference.

“This is the most important annual professional development and networking opportunity for sexuality educators, whether they are classroom teachers, community educators, therapists, counselors, healthcare providers or others. People travel from across the country — and from other countries — to attend, and I’m very proud that they will benefit from the expertise of so many of our members,” says Consortium Co-President Melanie Davis.

The lineup of Consortium members speaking at the National Sex Ed Conference includes:

  • “Teaching Safer Sex: The Next Generation,” keynote presented by Bill Taverner and Susan Milstein
  • “Sex Ed Everywhere” keynote panel, Melanie Davis will co-present with Deborah Roffman (moderator), Ben Anderson-Naithe, Jessica Danforth and Mary Jo Podgurski.
