South Dakota to Hold Conference on STD Infection Rates
April 10, 2008
Later this month, South Dakota will hold a conference to discuss STD rates in the state. The April 25 conference will be held at the Sanford University of South Dakota Medical Center. It is expected to draw health care professionals, educators, counselors and others involved in STD prevention and treatment. A recent CDC study found that nearly one in four US teenage girls has an STD; a state health official believes that rate could be even higher in South Dakota.
