The speaker series follows in the same room with a keynote address and three presentations. Free lunch will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Registration is required.

For the speaker series, CEU credits will be available for healthcare professionals. Attendees will be entered into a drawing for gift cards and other giveaways.


The initiative, supported by the College of Health and Clinical Professions; Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, Public Health and Nutrition Science; Erath Engaged and the Public Health Student Association, is part of the College of Health Science’s commitment to promoting holistic well-being and ensuring the community remains educated and empowered on sexual health matters.

“I am proud of Dr. (Subi) Gandhi’s and Dr. Ryou’s commitment to the mission of our school and college to develop future healthcare advocates to serve our communities,” said Dr. Matt Laurent, dean of the School of Health and Clinical Professions.


“Being able to work collaboratively with our community partners to provide these types of educational experiences for our students is part of what makes Tarleton a great place to learn.”

Under the leadership of Dr. Myoung Ryou, head of the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, Public Health and Nutrition Science, Tarleton State continues to contribute significantly to the healthcare sector.


“The aim of Sexual Health Day is to provide a forum for public discussion about healthy and respectful sexual relationships,” Dr. Ryou said. “I hope that by attracting more events like this, the Tarleton Public Health Program will continuously support our communities in Texas.”
