Barbara retired from the City of Boston, Boston Public Schools, Health Education Program Director June 2012 after many years in the district. Before leaving she made sure the printing of the new Health Education Frameworks K-12 that she wrote over the past two years were completed and the 2011 Centers for Disease Control Boston Youth Risk Behavior Survey results were reported in her Executive Report. Barbara is pleased that through her work Boston now has condom access in their high schools.

Most of Barbara’s work is now at the university graduate school level and in under-developed countries, as well as, Sexuality in Older Adult Communities.
