This program provides information to young women ages 13-19 about how to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. We meet with girls one-on-one, and their information stays confidential. The Psst Program is a great way to learn more about how to keep yourself safe and healthy when it comes to sex and relationships.  You’ll have the chance to ask questions that are important to you, and you’ll receive gift cards and other goodies for your participation. 

For more information and to see if this program is for you, call the Psst Program at the Knox County Health Department at (865) 215-5168, or text us at (865) 544-8927.

Real talk—
get vaccinated.

Getting routine shots from your doctor is never fun, but getting HPV is worse.

Protect yourself by getting vaccinated. The HPV Vaccine is cancer prevention. Ask your doctor about what you can do to stay safe, or call 865-215-5000 to schedule a vaccination appointment at the Health Department.
