Meet our new Bixby Program Assistant, Alex Hanel

Reproductive health and sex education have been a passion of mine for years. While at Tulane University, I majored in Gender & Sexuality Studies and Psychology,  and I volunteered on a hotline dedicated to providing support for survivors of sexual assault. Not only did we run a completely student operated, 24-hour confidential hotline, but we also offered educational programming, mainly focusing on consent and fostering safe sexual decisions. After college, I started working for Planned Parenthood teaching sex education to high school students, mostly ninth graders. I continue to teach with them and absolutely love it. Currently, I am a dual degree student pursuing a Master of Public Health and a Master of Social Welfare.

Alex is working with Paula Tavrow on all Bixby program activities.
