PROGRAM
REACH: CONDOMS ARE NOT PANACEA TO AVOIDING STD'S
Warns
Condom Demonstrations in the Classroom Could Lead to Harmful Health Risks,
Including Infertility

New York, NY--June 3rd...The New York City Department of Education is taking a
gamble with children's long-term sexual health by focusing solely on the use of
condoms without teaching risk avoidance techniques, today charged Program Reach, a not-for-profit organization that teaches young people to make healthy choices with their bodies.

The charge comes following yesterday's news report that the New York City Department of Education is requiring teachers for the first
time to conduct condom demonstrations in the classroom as part of the
sex-education curriculum. Previously, demonstrations were conducted in the
nurse's office upon request.

Program Reach officials warned that it's a mistake to treat condoms as a panacea to avoiding all sexually transmitted diseases and infections. According to the CDC, condoms can be expected to provide different levels of protection for various STDs, depending on differences in how the diseases are transmitted.

The CDC rates those who engage in correct condom use with an infected HIV partner as only 80% less likely to contract the virus, and the numbers are even lower for
many other STD's, including Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. A shocking forty percent of women who become infected with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea become infertile. Many infected persons may be unaware of their infection because STDs often are
asymptomatic and unrecognized.

"We can all agree that being in good sexual health is just as critical as any other
area of our bodies," said Dr. Nanci Coppola, CEO of Program Reach. "But treating
condoms as the cure-all to preventing STDs is not only inaccurate, but dangerous
to the long-term health of our children, who can suffer infertility and other
serious physical damage as a result of sexually transmitted diseases. Condom
demonstrations can also pressure young people to have sex earlier than they
might otherwise. Unless we are also teaching risk avoidance techniques, we are
failing our children."

Press Release from Legislator John Testa, BOL Minority Leader

 

For Immediate Release: June 1, 2015

Contact:  Matt Richter, BOL Communications Director

646-302-2220, mjr3@westchestergov.com

 

Legislator Testa Secures Funding for Cortlandt, Peekskill, Yorktown Youth Programs

 

$1.3 million in funding to be distributed throughout County

 

Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) Minority Leader John G. Testa (R) Peekskill, was joined by his colleagues in passing legislation that authorized the County to enter into Inter-municipal agreements (IMA) with a number of municipalities including, Cortlandt, Peekskill and Yorktown to deliver more than $1.3 million of funding for youth programs.  The vote took place at the regular meeting of the BOL.  The Legislation passed 17-0.  The IMA terms provide for $870,000 to come from Westchester County and the remainder to be contributed by the municipalities.

 

The Legislation states that the various programs that will be funded throughout Westchester County were all, “developed to address the needs of youth and encourage their growth into mature and productive adults; they focus on resume and job assistance, college exploration and readiness…safe place during out of school time, dropout prevention and/or academic services…”

 

The Town of Cortlandt Recreation Department will receive $6,535 for its general youth recreation programs and for youth employment services.

 

Peekskill will receive almost $13,000 for the Leadership Initiatives for Teens (L.I.F.T.) Program.  Another $4,600 will go to the City of Peekskill Youth Boat Building program.

 

Yorktown will receive $3,700 for a Police Department Youth Officer who will work with kids in recognizing the dangers of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs.  Additionally, Yorktown will receive $4,000 for the Recreation Commission special project.

Legislator John Testa retired in 2013 after a 33 year career as a Peekskill High School teacher.  As a former teacher, Legislator Testa understands the importance of youth programs that give kids, especially at-risk kids healthy and constructive options for their time after school.  “I was very happy to work with my legislative colleagues to secure these funds for the communities that I represent.  I am very familiar with all the programs we are funding and the excellent work that they do.”  Legislator Testa said.  “When I was a teacher, I saw first-hand how the intervention of after school programs improved the lives of many of my students.  Summers and the after school hours are particularly dangerous times for kids who are unsupervised or who don’t have a strong family support system at home.  It is imperative that we support these programs financially.  This is an excellent investment in our youth and their future.”

MINIMAL DECOR, MAJOR ART, AND MAXIMAL VIEWS CONVERGE IN A WEST VILLAGE PIED-À-TERRE
For designer Linherr Hollingsworth, no job is too small, big, daunting, or beneath her, even when it comes to a project started by another decorator and then abandoned halfway through. “We think of our firm as problem solvers,” Hollingsworth says of the West Village pied-à-terre she polished to completion for clients who have a primary residence in Connecticut.

A PAIR OF WORLD TRAVELERS FROM THE WEST COAST STOP OFF IN NEW YORK—AND DECIDE TO STAY AWHILE
A career that takes one to international locales might sound exotic, but it isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be. For one San Francisco couple, business as usual meant frequent travel to such far-flung destinations as the Far East and Europe, and weekends spent together became the exception, not the rule.

DECORATOR GREG SHANO GIVES A DOCTOR’S BACHELOR PAD IN CHELSEA A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH
Little more than a crash pad, the 620-square-foot studio Bret Rudy, an HIV specialist who is the vice chair of pediatrics at New York University School of Medicine, calls home was bare-bones to the core, with stark white walls, scant furnishings, and just a few pieces of carefully chosen artwork. “I had been there five years,” recalls Rudy, who was fully aware of the space’s potential as a stylish urban lair. When he was ready to take the plunge, he enlisted his friend Greg Shano, a decorator, to make it over.
