Vida is committed to sexual health education by offering free presentations to our area youth inside school classrooms, clubs, and youth groups.
Presentations include topics such as healthy relationships, STDs, and avoidance of risky behaviors.
Learning how to have a healthy relationship with setting boundaries and goal setting empowers our youth to have a plan for each season of their lives. Learning not to engage in risky behaviors, like teen sex, will positively impact their physical and emotional health. With statistics showing that one out of every four sexually active teens will contract a sexually transmitted infection/ disease (STD) and one out of two by age 25 (and rates on the rise in our community,) our nurse covers current and medically accurate information, statistics, and facts about STDs in an easy to understand and interactive format.
Teaching our youth, sexually active or not, equips and empowers them to make healthy choices. Our interactive presentation enables the audience to freely ask questions, even anonymously if preferred, to ensure that they are getting accurate information that so often can be misinterpreted in social media, from their peers, and on inaccurate internet sites.
If you are interested in having a Vida Medical Clinic nurse present to your classroom or group, please contact us at 920-731-4354 and ask for the Youth Outreach Coordinator.

If you are a high school or college student and have become pregnant, you may be experiencing normal feelings of fear, anxiety and hopelessness. Vida helps students find answers to questions like:
Can I finish school while I am pregnant?
What will my friends at school say and think?
How do I tell my parents?
What if my boyfriend doesn’t want to support me?
What do I do if I can’t afford a baby?
What do I do if I don’t know anything about parenting?
What is adoption like?
Is abortion right for me?
All of our medical and support services are free and confidential. We have pregnancy materials and resources designed especially for students to help you learn about your pregnant young body and labor and delivery from a student’s perspective. We will walk alongside you as you develop life skills to help you navigate pregnancy while still attending school. Contact us at 920-731-4354 or request an appointment here.
