Tap That


An app all about sexual health information has been provided to NYC compliments of Mayor Bloomberg and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.  The app is targeted towards teenagers. It provides information on three areas: where to go for services, what contraceptive devices to get, and what they can expect at the clinic of their choice.

The app is just one of the many methods the NYC Health Department is using to help reduce teen pregnancy and increase sexual health knowledge.  They also have advertisements that have been deemed controversial by the public.  What are your thoughts on the ad?

Would you find an app like this helpful as a JHU student?  If such an app existed, what would you want it to include?

Did you know that you can go to the Student Health and Wellness Center for STI testing, well-woman exams, and contraception counseling?  Not to mention, all the free condoms you could ever want!
