CDC and AAP Release Resources for Healthcare Providers on Adolescent Sexual Health

May 30, 2019 | Kim Rodgers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have launched a variety of resources to support healthcare providers in improving awareness and knowledge of sexual and reproductive health care for adolescents. The new resources provide guidance on recommended services, approaches to addressing important clinical issues, and information for patients and their families on how to optimize the health of adolescents and young adults and reduce risk taking behaviors. The patient and family specific information is designed to be shared by the primary care provider with patients and their families.

Next Steps:

Ffollow CDC DASH (@CDC_DASH) and AAP (@AAPNews) on Twitter to stay up-to-date on guidance and resources on the topic of adolescent sexual health.
