Public health student receives Planned Parenthood award

Congratulations to MPH student Kayla Simon.

Kayla, who is an MPH student in the Health Policy and Management concentration, has been selected to receive a Planned Parenthood educator award.  The award is designed to recognize local educators who have gone above and beyond in supporting comprehensive sex education (CSE) programs. 

This award is particularly special because Kayla is not directly employed in a role related to sexual health education.  However, her dedication to advocating for better sexual education programs has drawn praise from Planned Parenthood of Knoxville.

Kayla will receive her award in April at Standing Strong, Planned Parenthood of Knoxville’s annual fundraiser. Volunteers of the Year will also be recognized at the event.
