It’s still here in our communities and schools! Since 1990 there is approximately 50,000 NEW cases of HIV every year. Why are there so many new cases each year for a completely preventable disease? Teachers at every grade level will be able to apply the knowledge learned here to better execute the New York state-mandated lessons for each grade level. When educators have a better understanding of course curricula, they, in turn, will feel more comfortable teaching the content which not only helps the teacher but the students will prosper too. Teacher s will be able to identify the fluids that transmit HIV, be able to distinguish between high, low and virtually no risk behaviors, have an understanding of Prep and Pep, Additionally teachers will utilize refusal skills, decision-making skills through various role-plays and discussions among colleagues. 3 Graduate or In-Service Credits
