About this Webinar

Multnomah County, located in Oregon and includes the Portland Metro Area, developed the Sexual Health Equity for Individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (SHEIDD) project in collaboration with several partners including the UCEDD at Oregon Health & Science University. The SHEIDD builds community capacity to provide holistic sexual health education and support to young people (age 14-21) experiencing I/DD so they can make informed decisions, stay safe, and experience healthy relationships. This webinar will provide information about the SHEIDD model and some of its activities, which have been developed and implemented through the Community Advisory Group, a collaborative of health educators, I/DD professionals, teachers, self-advocates, and other stakeholders.

A Webinar from AUCD's Sexual Health Special Interest Group.
