El Camino Union articles I’ve written available online

My intent was to write a post like this for each individual article as it is posted on the Union website, but time has gotten away from me in the past few weeks  and instead of offering you some lame excuse for not having done so, I will simply present the links as a group in this post.

You’re welcome.

from “Student Health Center offers free HPV vaccines for those who qualify“:

General human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually-transmitted infection, and now the EC student health center is offering the vaccine for free to students who qualify.

“HPV is a risk factor for cancer and young people don’t seem to be worried about it,” Melanie Bronstein, nurse practitioner in the EC student health center said.

 

from “Woman fired for speaking up against sexism“, an opinion piece on the Adria Richards situation:

Adria Richards was fired from her job as adeveloper evangelist with SendGrid this morning because she had the nerve to speak out about sexist and inappropriate behavior she witnessed at a mostly male tech conference, PyCon.

 

from “Naked affection fosters infection“, a news article on STDs:

Look at the people in your immediate vicinity. More than likely one of them has had a sexually-transmitted disease (STD).

Melanie Bronstein is one of two nurse practitioners who run the STD clinic at the EC student health center. She says college students are contracting STDs at an alarming rate.

“Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common, then chlamydia, then gonorrhea. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) actually appears a lot as well, Bronstein said.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 2 sexually active people will get an STD by the age of 25 with more than 50 percent contracting HPV.
