Each child deserves quality comprehensive sexual health education. No child is the same, so why should the sexual health education they receive be one size fits all? Support individualized comprehensive sexual education for all students.

Budget

Budget Overview

The majority of the budget will go towards hiring a software developer to create the platform for the tailored online sexual health curriculum.

Additional funds will be used to purchase existing evidence-based interventions that have improved sexual health outcomes for students. Liz and Vichi will ground the MyHealthEd curriculum in health behavior theory and evidence-based strategies in both public health and education fields.

Meet the Researcher

Background

After graduating from Princeton, Liz joined Teach for America and taught high school chemistry and biology for two years in Gaston, NC. She served as the graduate research assistant to Dean Bill McDiarmid at UNC's School of Education. Liz is interested in leveraging the intersection between education and public health to simultaneously address health disparities and educational inequities in low-resourced communities in rural North Carolina. After completing her Master's degree, Vichi also joined Teach For America and taught high school science for two years in the same county as Liz. Vichi is interested in using technology, and especially the internet, to broaden access to education in developing regions.


In April 2013, Liz and Vichi won 1st place in the IntraHealth SwitchPoint Silo Busters Lightning Competition sponsored by Pfizer for their MyHealthEd idea. Please email them at myhealthed@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
