PolicyLab Celebrates Teen Health Week 2023

Adolescence is a critical time of development, during which teens can face new challenges to their health and well-being and may strive for more independence in making their own health care decisions. In honor of Teen Health Week, we’re elevating some of our resources designed to support teen health on our social media channels. 

Tune in to our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts this week to find videos on timely teen health content, highlights of our projects exploring the benefits of health technology and advice from our team members that they would share with their teenage selves.

We’re also celebrating a new law making expedited partner therapy—an effective practice in reducing the reoccurrence of STIs— explicitly legal in PA by sharing an updated issue brief with more guidance on how to move the needle even further. 

Be sure to join the conversation by 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. Learn more about our aims and body of research here.
