Albany- The Dougherty County Health Department sponsored the first Girl Talk program.

6th to 12th graders listened to presentations about sexually transmitted diseases and early detection of breast cancer and cervical cancer.

"Young ladies my age may not have gotten a lot of information from their moms i didn't get a lot so we're out here trying to educate those girls that moms may not can reach them and maybe were the only ones that can reach them so we're trying to do that," says Monique Mosely, RN. 

Organizers hope to hold another Girl Talk program in October for breast cancer awareness month.
