    How about Osteorporosis Prevention?

    Substance Abuse?

    Sexual health issues and STD's?

    Smoking, Lung Cancer?

    Hepatitis C?

    An hour is a long time for a presentation. Make some handouts. Involve the inmates. Question and Answer period.

    Good luck

    Number one killer of women- heart disease. Ask them to fill out a questionaire- what they think it the cause of most deaths- lung cancer, car accidents, heart attacks, etc. then shock them with the news. Alot of women think heart attacks are "mens" health issues

    another good one- early dectection of colo-rectal cancer

    I suggest including the following to your teaching regimen: the common diseases seen in these facilities and their prevention, importance of personal hygiene, handwashing, physical fitness, vaccination, smoking cessation, the no-no's of shared needle use, etc...
