Ren Grabert M.Ed. (formerly known as Andrea Renae) has been teaching about health and wellness through a sex positive lens since 2007. Their diverse work experience includes jobs both in the public health sphere: specifically in reproductive health and STI screening/prevention centers, as well as consent-based, pleasure-focused, education-driven retail, including nationally recognized adult shops Passional Boutique and The Pleasure Chest. Ren’s passion is teaching healthcare providers the information and skills to facilitate patient-centered, affirming dialogue so that they are better prepared to discuss sexual health with their patients. They have spoken to medical students about sexual health and pleasure at Universities across the U.S.
Ren has been a small group facilitator for the American Medical Students Association’s Sexual Health Scholars program, and served as their Facilitator Coordinator over the 2016-2017 school year. Through workshops and one-on-one coaching, Ren teaches patients how to self-advocate and initiate conversations about sex with their healthcare providers. They hold a B.S. in Public Health from Temple University and an M.Ed. in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University. Find them on Twitter at @sexhealthinfo.
