Boynton Beach, FL – Dr. Brenda Dressler is an expert on human sexuality and an experienced HIV/AIDS prevention educator. Dr. Dressler’s presentations are designed to engage all participants, including parents, teachers and school administrators, on topics of sexuality including child sexual abuse prevention, child abduction and molestation prevention and sexual harassment prevention.

A sex and health educator for fifty years, Dr. Dressler began her career as a New York City public school teacher in upper Manhattan, where she initiated the first sex education program in the late 1960s that continued through 1984.

“In 1968, there was student interest in sex education, but it wasn't being taught,” recalls Dr. Dressler. “So I started an experimental program, the first sex education course in district 6, in upper Manhattan. In 1987, I started a parenthood program in two Queens high schools. The Queens Superintendent of the public schools appointed me the Queens Comprehensive Health Coordinator (CHC) in 1990 where I oversaw the family living sex education unit and then in 1991, the HIV/AIDS education including the Condom Availability Program.  I was affectionately called the Condom Queen of Queens.”

In 2010, Dr. Dressler traveled to Uganda to teach HIV/AIDS prevention education at Kampala University, to nurses working in treatment centers, and to students in primary and in secondary schools. She also traveled to Israel to teach child sexual abuse prevention at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Dr. Dressler is currently writing a book entitled Sex Beyond Sixty: Myths and Facts.
