Los Angeles, CA. – The 3rd annual Sexual Health Expo (SHE), announced that iconic American figure Dr. Ruth Westheimer, will deliver the Keynote Talk for the event at 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 4, 2017. The SHE Expo, which will take place at the California Market Center in Downtown Los Angeles this coming weekend February 4-5, is expected to draw over 4,000 attendees.

The Keynote Talk is entitled: “Dr. Ruth on Sexual Literacy: The Knowledge Base You Need to Have Terrific and Safe Sex.”

“I am looking forward to speaking at the Sexual Health Expo in Los Angeles. While I have never attended one of their earlier gatherings, I understand that many ‘next generation’ sex experts, or ‘Sexperts,’ will be presenting workshops during this two-day expo.  From what I gather, a number of them were inspired to pursue the field of human sexuality by my efforts during the past four decades. That is very humbling to acknowledge, and I am very happy that these professionals are helping to spread the importance of healthy sex to all consenting adults!” – Dr. Ruth

At age 88, Dr. Ruth shows no signs of slowing down. Born in 1928 in Germany, Dr.  Ruth rose to popularity as a result of her live, one-hour television show “Dr. Ruth” where she answered call-in questions from listeners. She became known as pioneer in the field of human sexuality, and a psychosexual therapist who spoke frankly about sexual matters. Dr. Ruth is part of a communications network that distributes her expertise across media, television, books, newspapers, games, home video, computer software and her own website.

After immigrating to the United States in 1956, she obtained her Masters Degree in Sociology from the Graduate Faculty of the New School of Social Research. In 1970, she received a Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) in the interdisciplinary Study of the Family from Columbia University Teacher’s College.

Audiences of all demographics worldwide have been attracted to her knowledge and expertise through her newer shows “The All New Dr. Ruth Show”, “What’s Up, Dr. Ruth” which have been broadcast on Lifetime, MTV and others. She is also author of forty-one books and counting, and her syndicated column is featured in global magazines and newspapers.

Sara Ramirez, SHE’s Media Director expressed great enthusiasm for having Dr. Ruth highlight the expo.

“We are beyond thrilled to have the remarkable Dr. Ruth speak to our attendees! She is without question, the Mother of modern day sexual health and wellness movement, and a true national treasure. We know that her presence will certainly help to position our event as the preeminent sexual health gathering in the United States, if not the world. Our attendees, exhibitors and ‘Sexperts’ are all looking forward to attending Dr. Ruth’s talk. ” – Sara Ramirez
