Myself Unknown: How Stereotypes Influence What Women Do and Feel?
by Nancy Kenney, Ph.D.
Even in the 21st century, women are not expected to know or understand the
functioning of their own bodies but they are expected to accept societal
judgments about their physical and psychological selves. This talk will
examine how women’s lives and their self-concepts are influenced by
gender-based stereotypes about emotionality, cognitive abilities and
*Alcohol and Women’s Health
*by Jason Kilmer, Ph.D.*
How does alcohol affect women differently than men? How does alcohol impact
sleep? Exactly how many drinks is in that big red cup? Come find out about
research relevant to safety, sex differences, sleep, and social effects.
Eating Disorders and Healthy Di*eting** *
*by Elizabeth Kirk, Ph.D., R.D.*
College students are a vulnerable population for developing eating
disorders. Increased social and academic pressure, changes in meal structure
and food access, and anxiety about the “freshmen 15” are a few of many
possible reasons for this increased risk. Attend this talk to learn more
about eating disorders and the ways to practice healthy dieting today.
Moregasm (Healthy Sexuality)
Take risks, get messy, own your orgasm and ultimately, get more of what you
want from sex. Babeland Sex Educators will discuss a range of topics,
including pleasure-based anatomy, the G-spot, female ejaculation, sex toys
and communication tips. Discover how to make safer sex even sexier and how
to have new, exciting sexual adventures whether you're solo or partnered.
Babeland specializes in providing honest, fun, sex-positive education to
help create a more passionate world for all of us
Sleep: What's It Good For?
by Carol Landis, DNSc, RN, FAAN
What activity during a typical day do you devote one-third of your time to
doing it? What happens when you don’t get enough sleep? What are the
consequences of skimping on sleep? Can you make up for lost sleep during
the week by sleeping more on the weekends? These are some of the questions
that we will talk about in this seminar.
Perinatal Support in a Cultural Context
by Open Arms Perinatal Services
Open Arms provides community-based support services to low income pregnant
