Teenage girls and sexually transmitted diseases

    The CDC reported last week that one in four teenage girls ages 14-19 has a sexually transmitted disease. We talk about the alarming rate of STDs among the nation’s adolescent females, how we got here and what we can do about it. Our guests are LENORE ASBEL of the Philadelphia Department of Health and LORETTA ROSS of SisterSong, a women of color reproductive health collective based in Atlanta.
