"Get Some" program promotes education
The theme of this month’s “Get Some” segment is “We Are … 50 Shades of Educated." This episode will provide a fresh take and analysis of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and explain why these erotic best-selling novels are not an accurate portrayal of BDSM; and the kink community’s feelings about the books. The show will be taped live at Penn State Berks on Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, at 8 pm. in Ivy Lounge in the Woods Residence Hall Complex.
"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. Two residence hall assistants helped to facilitate this episode in the residence halls: seniors Jade Eggleston, Applied Psychology major, and Katherine De Crescenzo, Global Studies major.
"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 is certified by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) as a sexuality educator and she holds a 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 College Health Association (ACHA) and American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
