STD Epidemic in Lane County
In response to the new data, Luedtke held an emergency STD summit at Lane County Public Health early Thursday morning. “We are quite concerned with the volume of sexually transmitted diseases occurring in our county and across the state,” said Luedtke, “and we felt it was time to give the provider community — the doctor community — knowledge of that and to give them the tools to address it.” Luedtke said the summit had four main goals: to share the new STD data, share changes in treatments, raise awareness about antibiotic resistant strains of gonorrhea and learn from the health care community in the area.
