Congratulations to Sue LeAnne Biggs, Jan Nabors, Jasmine Elrod, Nathan Lee Tate, TJ Rumler, and Brad Peterson for winning the 2014 Influencing State Policy contest. The University of South Carolina (Greenville) students have been asked to present at the 2015 Policy 2.0 Conference upon receiving their award. Under the direction of Dr. Lynn Bosma, the students will be creating a poster board, entitled, Reforming Health Education in South Carolina: Advancing the Healthy Youth Amendment through Partnerships, Public Awareness and Legislative Discourse, to present their findings.

The students entered the contest by the way of advocating on the issues addressing the Comprehensive Health Education Act and the passing of the Healthy Youth Amendment H. 3435. They collaborated with the reproductive health advocacy group, Tell Them, to support H. 3435. The students also advocated within their local school districts to ask for updated curriculum and follow the current law, as it pertains to reproductive health and health education.

The conference will host several social work educators and students from across the country to share their work in policy and policy practice, as well as, develop strategies for maximizing social work’s participation in local, state, and national affairs. The conference is scheduled for May 28-30, 2015 in Austin, Texas. If you are interested in seeing our students present, please register using the following  link.
