Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Decreasing teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases in the Latino community through health education: A grant proposal
by Mendoza, Jennifer, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 56; 1499184
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a pregnancy prevention program, identify a potential funding source to support the development and completion of the program, and complete a grant application to fund the program. The proposed program is a comprehensive sex and health education program that will be provided to Latino high school students to educate them about the risks and consequences of teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases as well as the importance of using birth control. An extensive literature review on teenage pregnancy, risky sexual behaviors, and contraceptive use among adolescents was conducted. After searching for potential funding sources on the Internet, the California Wellness Foundation was selected as the best funding source for this program. A grant was written to fund a pregnancy prevention program for at-risk Latino adolescents.
