Sexual HealthSexual Health

Sexual health and wellness matters. That is why we’re addressing it with this consortium. At each age and stage of your patients’ lives, sexual health and wellness should be considered as part of their overall health. As we ease out of the pandemic, the topic is even more important as some issues may have not been addressed during this time.

This will include practical advice for how to approach the topic with your patients, and resources you can offer them as they navigate their own sexual health and wellness journey.
