Lillian Bocquin

Bloomberg Fellow

Lillian is an Adolescent Sexual Health Educator based in Oklahoma City. She works with Honestly, Sexual Health Collective for Youth, an organization dedicated to improving sexual health education for adolescents in Oklahoma. Lillian's passion for this work stems from her own experience of receiving high-quality sexual health education as a middle school student, something she believes is lacking for many young Oklahomans. As a youth health educator, Lillian has taught evidence-based and comprehensive sexual health programs to thousands of students. Her efforts, along with others, have contributed to a reduction in teen birth rates across the state. 

Honestly: Sexual Health for Youth serves as the backbone organization of the central Oklahoma Teen Pregnancy Prevention Collaboration. They operate within the Collective Impact framework, working in collaboration with various partners in the Oklahoma City Metro area. As the facilitator of the Collaboration, Honestly convenes, supports, and connects partner networks of change agents. They actively engage and mobilize the community, advocate for youth to have access to resources and services and ensure medically accurate information about sexual health is readily available.
