Improving Adolescent Care

Training presented by NYPATH & Hudson Headwaters' CAPP Grant

Are you providing the best reproductive and supportive care to your adolescent patients?

Do you know what barriers young people face when seeking and receiving reproductive health services? What are the social contexts & developmental challenges of LGBTQ youth? Do understand NY State laws regarding consent & confidentiality? How do you take a sexual history of an adolescent patient? What strategies as a healthcare provider could you implement to improve the services you provide to your adolescent patients?


If these are areas where you could improve your practice and care for adolescents, please join us for an educational day hosted by NYPATH (New York Promoting & Advancing Teen Health) and the Teen Awareness Group (a Hudson Headwaters CAPP Grant program).


The sessions are FREE and CME credits are available for medical providers. Registration required...R.S.V.P. for each session below!
