[Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this project is to describe the results of an integrated community service and service learning project that addressed the high prevalence of sexually transmitted infection (STI) in a largely immigrant Latino and African-American community area in a large Midwestern city. Methods: A six month community based STI prevention project was implemented.  Results: The most significant findings from this community based STI program were that the Latino and African American adolescents studied lacked proper knowledge regarding safe sex and healthy behavioral practices and most refused treatment. Conclusion: Overall, this initial project was successful and effective in directing student learning and addressing the public health issues revealed in the community.
