Practice,” is from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, June 23.

The workshop is presented by Antonia Villarruel, associate dean for Research and Global Affairs at the University of Michigan School of Nursing.

She will discuss research developments highlighting individual and contextual factors linked to increased risk for teen pregnancy and what these developments mean for practitioners.

She will also describe ¡Cuídate! (or Protect Yourself!) a researched based, empirically supported prevention program developed by Dr. Villarruel that is part of the CDC's Diffusion of Evidence Based Interventions program.

The workshop is in the North Hall B.S. Roberts Room. Prior registration and a $10 fee are required to attend the session.   Register here.
