Podcast #9 - Chlamydia Screening


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that screening rates for Chlamydia are disturbingly low, even as it has become the nation’s most common reportable sexually transmittable disease. Partnership for Prevention has organized the National Chlamydia Coalition to help increase routine screening for Chlamydia infections. We discuss these concerns with Dr. Yolanda Wimberly, a nationally recognized pediatrician and the medical director for the Center for Excellence in Sexual Health at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta.
