Description

Join the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, Region 7 to learn more about TAG and how YOU can take action to influence adolescent health and development. Together we can improve the future of our children.

Adolescence is an important time for promoting health and preventing disease, one that is sometimes overlooked. Most of the nation’s 42 million adolescents are generally healthy. In recent years, the nation has seen declines in teen births, smoking, substance dependency, and higher academic achievement for younger adolescents. However, all adolescents can benefit from guidance in these years to improve their health and development, and for some, serious challenges remain.
