"Get Some" explores human sexuality and health

Penn State Berks Health Services and Penn State Berks WPSB TV have joined forces to produce a monthly TV show on health with an emphasis on human sexuality titled Get Some.
The next 45-minute show will be taped live at Penn State Berks WPSB TV on November 30 and will air on WPSB TV (channel 5) at 6:30 p.m. The program can also downloaded on iTunes.

Guests include Georgia Kurtz, Prevention Services Manager for Co-County Wellness Services, who will address communicable disease health issues and HIV/AIDS, and Penn State Berks student Jumah Taweh, a member of the Sisterhood of Professional Ladies Club on campus, who will share the campus activities planned for World AIDS Day on December 1.

Alice Holland, Penn State Berks Nurse Supervisor, is the host, and the show includes an interactive audience that features both college students and professionals as guests.

"The culmination of my past employment experiences at Blue Mountain Health System Family Planning Clinic, Lehighton Area School District, and Lehigh Valley Hospital, along with my present employment at Penn State, has prepared me with the assessment, interpersonal, and communication skills needed to host the show," explained Holland about her credentials.

In addition to her position as Health Services Supervisor at Penn State Berks, Holland also teaches courses in human sexuality. She is presently a Human Sexuality Doctoral Candidate and member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), American College Health Association (ACHA) and American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
