"The most important thing that you can do to maintain good physical and mental health and to assure yourself of equal opportunity in the future is to stay in school and get an education."
-- Statement from the Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine, The College of Physicians of Philadelphia
While the five main themes of TEEN HEALTH WEEK℠ encompass many of the important issues facing teens today, they are only some of the ways teens can better take control of their health. We encourage local, state, and national organizations to develop programs and initatives catered to the unique teen helath issues facing their communities.
The College of Physicians of Philadelphia offers resources drawing upon healthcare professionals in the field to help teens better understand their personal health and development. For more information, including facts and figures, and ideas on how to raise awareness about issues related to teen health, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
