Adolescent Health Partnerships

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 | 1:00-2:00 PM ET

In celebration of SOPHE’s National Health Education Week 2012, which focuses on promoting and establishing healthy behaviors among our nation’s youth, the webinar will provide an overview of the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) and discuss the new evidence-based initiative to reduce teen pregnancy, HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, and risky sexual behavior among adolescents.

Join Evelyn M. Kappeler, Director of OAH, as she discusses how OAH works in concert with closely aligned programs supported by other HHS agencies. Participants will learn about the Health and Human Services (HHS) systematic review of the evidence base on programs to reduce teen pregnancy, a key component underlying this new initiative. Participants will learn about how the teen pregnancy prevention evidence-based programs are being replicated and evaluated. The webinar will also highlight new OAH resources available for health and social service professionals who work with young people, including a web-based resource center for HIV/AIDS prevention among adolescents, resources for those working with expectant and parenting teens, and a searchable database of adolescent.
