"Get Some" explores body art

This month's episode of "Get Some," a monthly TV program on health with an emphasis on human sexuality, will feature a discussion about body art with Kevin Weber, body piercer and shop manager of Dragonfly Tattoos. Weber will cover decision making, potential concerns, and client's "bill of rights," along with answers to common questions about tattoos and body piercing. The next 45-minute show will be taped live at Penn State Berks WPSB-TV on Monday, March 29, 2010 and will air on WPSB-TV (channel 5) at 6 p.m. The program can also downloaded on iTunes.

"Get Some" is a joint venture of Penn State Berks Health Services and Penn State Berks WPSB-TV. 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).
