Description: 

This College Prep Workshop will prepare young women to  navigate their college years in a safe and healthy way, offering smart strategies for handling many health, safety, and social issues that young women face, including sexuality, alcohol use, stress, risk of sexual assault, peer pressure, diet, and exercise. Dr. M. Susan Scanlon, board-certified physician and author of "The Gyne's Guide for College Women: How to Have a Healthy, Safe, and Happy Four Years," designed this interactive workshop specifically for high school and college young women and their moms. The event includes: Health & Safety tips, recommended safety apps, Defining your boundaries, Practicing the Power of the Word "NO," a Fight Like a Girl Self Defense lesson, the "Dorm Room Workout," and plan for healthy eating in college. Why? The college years can be bumpy and even dangerous for young women. The first few months, known as the "Red Zone" are especially tough and the time when young women are most at risk of sexual assault and alcohol related problems. Our daughters prep for the ACT and carefully plan out their dorm room decor, they also need to prepare for the social, health and safety issues they will face so their college years can be happy and productive.
