May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month!
It's Let's Talk Month!
We have all had that nervous feeling in our stomach: summer break is coming to an end, and you’re dreading that first day back. After all the days of sleeping in, staying up late to enjoy the summer nights, and no homework, it’s time to start the school year all over again.
May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month! This month is recognized as a time to look at how teen pregnancy rates have changed over time and understand why this is still an important topic.
The past week was Teen Health Week! Teen Health Week was created for teens to become more involved and aware of the health issues that they face all around the world.
