Sista to Sista
The Women’s Health Project held an intergenerational event about
sexual and reproductive health, titled “Sista to Sista – and others” on
Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2011, in the community room at Bliss Towers in
Hudson, New York. Women were encouraged to attend and to bring a
younger woman or a teen with them. Likewise, younger women and teens
were encouraged to attend and bring an older woman with them.
Dr. Christine Pluviose, Vice President of Patient Services with
Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood (UHP), led the audience in a Health
Jeopardy game in which participants played to learn about reproductive
health. Helping with the game were teens with UHPP’s S.T.A.R.S,
Seriously Talking About Responsible Sex.
Organizations lending their support to this event were Upper
Hudson Planned Parenthood, the Mental Health Association of
Columbia-Greene Counties, Operation Unite Education and Cultural Arts
Center, and the Columbia County Department of Health.

the Center for the Elimination of Minority Health Disparities at the
University at Albany.
