Facts, Fiction and Fake News on Teen Parenting
May 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
People have always shared stories and ideas to explain the unknown from ancient myths to creative internet videos. When working with youth, it is important decipher the facts from the fiction. Join TPPP as we learn about sexual health research and trends, including what rumors are circulating within the community, during our 2019 Professional Development Series. We will explore data and evidence to inform adolescent sexual health programs, as well as, the “fake news” that education and prevention programs must address.
Lee I. Smith, Ph.D., M.S.N., B.S.N., RN, Professor, School of Nursing, Saint Louis University, along with a panel of local programs supporting parenting teens, will discuss what we know about parenting teens today and how we provide resources to help them thrive.
