Letters from the Chair in Sexual Health
by Eli Coleman, PhD
In light of the recent U.S. election, I know that many people are scared, frightened, angry, and confused right now. Still, others see that change is necessary. While change is unsettling, this election does not change who we are. We will rise up and be the best of who we are in the face of these uncertain times.
