Across the state of Ohio during the 2014-2015 school year a Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) program was taught and continues to be today.  Ohio Adolescent Health Centers (OAHC) teaches the SRA program in middle and high schools starting from grade 7th to 12 grade. Currently there are 19 (OAHCs) across Ohio state.  The Abstinence study was carried out by the Baylor University Religious Institute and is located in Waco, Texas. Waco is a city located in the Eastern part of Texas.  At the end of the program according to a survey conducted by Baylor University Religious Institute there was 34% growth of the students pledging to stay abstinent.  This is awesome that there are many students in Ohio making healthy and self-esteemed boosting decisions. Remember teens it is never too late to pledge a life of sexual abstinence until marriage.
