PolicyLab Celebrates Teen Health Week 2022

Adolescence is a critical time of development and teens face many unique challenges to their health and well-being. In honor of Teen Health Week, we’re focusing our conversation this year around school health education—how health education is implemented in schools, what teens think about school health education, and ways we can strengthen it to help teens, and all students, grow into their healthiest selves.

In our new issue brief, our experts recommend that school health education be responsive to youth needs, medically accurate, age appropriate and culturally inclusive. 

Be sure to check back throughout the week as we share new content and engage with us on social media (@PolicyLabCHOP) to join the conversation using #TeenHealthWeek. 

Beyond Teen Health Week, our Adolescent Health and Well-being Portfolio aims to support adolescents' development into healthy, productive adults all year long.
