A few spots are left in Poe Center for Health Education's upcoming Girl Talk workshop.

The workshop, designed for girls in fourth to seventh grade and their mothers, is 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Saturday, at the center at 224 Sunnybrook Rd., Raleigh. Registration is $25 for each mother and daughter pair, plus $10 for each additional daughter.

Girl Talk addresses adolescent growth and development along with the physical, social and emotional changes that girls experience during puberty, according to the description. 3D theater exhibits, hands-on activities, movies and candid discussions help moms and their daughters explore a range of topics  from the workings of the reproductive system to the menstrual cycle to feminine hygiene protection and more. It's designed to foster and encourage open mother-daughter communication.

To register, contact Robin Pittman at or 919-231-4006 ext. 322.
