Closing Plenary: Secrets by the Educational Theater Group at Kaiser Permanente
Stanford West

It’s senior year, and the future holds no bounds for Eddie, Monica, and their friends. Eddie is a star athlete already being recruited by several colleges; Monica is a popular honor roll student, strong in her convictions, including her commitment to abstinence. When Eddie realizes that a past experience has put him at risk for HIV and STIs, he knows that the smartest thing he can do is get tested. As secrets are revealed, a chain of strangers become forever linked—and none of them will be the same again.
