First-year nursing students in the Health Promotion course put their knowledge on public display March 2 with a poster display in the foyer of the Health Sciences Centre. There were seven posters in all. The group of students pictured chose the subject of Sexting: Pushing all the Wrong Buttons. The students explained that sexting -- sending a text message accompanied by a photo of a sexual nature via a cellphone -- is a new trend that has become increasingly popular among adolescents. The students who made the poster were (from left): Meghan Clarke, John Norris, Kersten King and Meghan Ezekiel. They said they deliberately picked a topical subject to catch people’s attention. The nursing students hope to take the poster display to schools to educate young people about the dangers of sexting.
