Not On Our Watch
Dr. Roberts also enjoys providing education to women and girls about making healthy decisions for their bodies. In 2014, Dr. Roberts developed a program called “Not On Our Watch” (NOOW). NOOW was designed to provide an avenue to educate young women, between the ages of 10-17 years, on establishing healthy behaviors with their bodies in a fun and safe environment. Additionally, the program is designed to provide education on positive health practices as they relate to wellness and sexually transmitted infections (STI) prevention. The programs include fun educational games as well as inspirational speakers talking about how to achieve healthy hygiene. Trained coaches and volunteers answer questions and address myths and facts about sensitive topics. Dr. Roberts’ mission for NOOW is to educate and change unhealthy behaviors. This is her chance to give back to the community and give our female youth life-changing education from trained community physicians and experts.
