Request or Register for a Classroom Training

Sister to Sister Classroom Training

Sister to Sister should be implemented in a primary health care setting (e.g., primary care clinic, family planning clinic, STD clinic, or agency clinic site). Agencies that are not able and willing to implement Sister to Sister in a clinic-based setting will not be considered to attend a training.

CDC recommends that two female staff who will serve as facilitators and conduct the intervention sessions attend the training. The facilitators for Sister to Sister should be health care providers (e.g., a nurse, health educator, social worker, etc.) Staff who will have a direct role in implementing Sister to Sister, such as the direct supervisors of the Sister to Sister facilitators, may attend the training as well.

How to request a training

If you are a health department, clinic or community-based organization that would like to request a training in your jurisdiction, please email with "Training Request: [intervention/strategy title]" in the subject line. Please explain when and where you are requesting the training, and provide your complete contact information. A DLH Training Manager will email you for more information. Please be advised that we may not be able to fulfill your request. CDC approves each training request and assigns the trainers.
