Vincent Guilamo-Ramos, professor and co-director of the Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health (CLAFH) at NYU's Silver School of Social Work, will be available for interview to talk about findings from a nationally representative poll about parents’ comfort level with regard to talking to their kids about sex.

Vincent Guilamo-Ramos, professor and co-director of the Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health (CLAFH) at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work will be available for interview on Monday, October 3 to discuss the release of findings from a nationally representative poll gauging parents’ comfort level talking to their kids about sex.

CLAFH commissioned the new poll with Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The Center also assisted in the analysis and interpretation of the large amount of data generated by the survey of 1,111 fathers and mothers of children, aged 10 to 18.

Guilamo-Ramos will participate in the October 3 media breakfast at which the poll findings will be released – in both English and Spanish. The event begins at 8:30 a.m. (ending at 10 a.m.) at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, 434 W. 33rd Street (between Ninth and Tenth avenues), New York, N.Y.

CLAFH will also make available, at no cost, “Families Talking Together,” a family-based program designed to support effective parent-adolescent communication among African-American and Latino families.
