 Let’s talk about SEX!

We’ve partnered with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) to talk to young people about healthy sexuality and condom use.  Winnipeggers 16-24 years old are invited to fill out a confidential survey – and can enter to win an iPad!
Feel free to pass along the poster below to any organization working directly with young people. Give Sara ( a shout for more information or condoms with the survey link.
