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.
