This brief highlights key findings from the implementation of an adapted version of Reducing the Risk, a comprehensive sex education program. The program was delivered by health educators in relatively low-income, mostly rural, high schools in the Barren River and Lincoln Trail District Health Departments in Kentucky during the 2013–2014 and 2014–2015 school years.

The report, Adapting an Evidence-based Curriculum in a Rural Setting: Implementing Reducing the Risk in Kentucky contains a full summary of these findings.
