Panelists from the CDC-Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) will discuss the impact of STDs in the nation and the role of health equity and addressing social determinants of health to extend the reach of STD prevention efforts. In addition, they will share with the audience the outcomes and lessons learned from the DSTDP project called "Community Approaches to Reducing Sexually Transmitted Diseases (CARS)." This community engagement project asked participants to develop strategies and activities that would address structural changes with the goal of reducing barriers that influence STD disparities in the community. 

This event is organized by the Polk County Health Department and the Division of STD Prevention of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention.
