“Health for All Adolescents: What is shaping adolescent health today” Webinar
Feb 01 2017, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EST
On Feb 1, at 11 am EST, join the American Public Health Association; The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health; the HHS Office of Adolescent Health, and The Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing to get the latest information on changing policy, economic, and environmental issues that shape adolescent health. During this webinar, speakers will discuss findings from our report, Our future: a Lancet commission on adolescent health and wellbeing and provide a closer look at policies and other multi-sectoral factors that affect adolescents globally and in the United States. It will include examples of what youth-serving professionals can do to support healthy adolescent development.
Globally, we have seen dramatic gains in women’s and younger children’s health, but adolescents continue to lag behind other age groups. Ensuring the healthy development of today’s adolescents reaps triple benefits for their health now, for their future adult life, and for future generations. However, the factors that shape adolescent health span multiple domains and are complex. How do we, the professionals who work with youth, handle these factors? Find out by joining the “Health for All Adolescents” webinar.
