"Get Some" program promotes a substance-free spring break

The theme of this month’s “Get Some” segment is “Not Tonight–Safe Spring Break.” Students will be encouraged to take the challenge to be substance-free, including use of tobacco, over spring break. The show will be taped live at Penn State Berks on Monday, February 27, 2012, from 6:00–6:45 pm. in the Perkins Student Center Multipurpose Room.  

Student attendees will receive a free “Not Tonight” t-shirt. Those who submit a photo wearing their t-shirt over spring break along with a short description of their experience using the “Not Tonight” theme will receive a beach chair cell phone holder and earn first-year seminar credit.

"Get Some" is a show about health with a human sexuality emphasis. Alice Holland, Penn State Berks Nurse Practitioner Supervisor serves as host.  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, two of which have culminated with an experiential approach in Kenya.  She holds master’s degrees in both Nursing and Human Sexuality, and is presently a Human Sexuality Doctoral student, as well as a member of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), American College Health Association (ACHA), and American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).

“Get Some” is filmed the last Monday of each month. Recent episodes can be viewed at www.youtube.com/psugetsome. For more information, contact Alice Holland at arh16@psu.edu.
