On May 7, 2010, former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, MD, will deliver a free lecture on the University of Minnesota campus. Her presentation "Revolutionizing Our Sexually Dysfunctional Society: Are Americans Ready to Talk, Listen, and Learn?" will cover the public health issue of sexual health and the fundamental changes required to move our society forward. Throughout her career as a pediatrician, state health director, and U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Elders has advocated that providing every citizen with a comprehensive sexual health education will not only improve the health of individuals, but advance the health of our communities and our society. She promotes the essential training of health care providers and education professionals, as well as improving access to sexual health information and sexual health services.
