Inequality and discrimination related to gender and sexuality are major barriers to the attainment of health. Using behavioral and social science theory and methods as well as human rights and social justice frameworks, students will gain analytical, program, and policy skills to understand and address the behavioral, structural, and social determinants of gender inequality and their impacts on individual, community, and population health.

Sex on the BU Beach | BU Today | Boston University
Asking sex-related questions, even of a medical expert, can be awkward, uncomfortable, and just plain scary. Neon giveaways, such as bracelets, necklaces, and large foam glow sticks will be handed out in advance and will provide some illumination as well as a little whimsy. The panelists will address as many questions as possible during the minute event. The evening begins with a Resource Fair at 6 pm.
The event takes place entirely in the dark to make it easier for audience members to ask intimate questions without feeling embarrassed. Rather than stand up to ask a question, people anonymously text questions just prior to or during the event, and the sexperts will answer as many of them as they can in the allotted 90 minutes. Previous Sex in the Dark panels have covered such topics as relationships and communication; pleasure and orgasm; masturbation, sexual techniques, and exploration; sexually transmitted infections; and sexuality and social stigmas.
But combine it with drinking and the results can be dangerous. This afternoon, Student Health Services will hold a free party to promote safe sex and drinking responsibly. George challenged the Student Health Ambassadors to come up with an event that would educate students about these issues, but would also be fun. In addition to information booths, there will be giveaways and games.
