Successful Teen Pregnancy Prevention -- Connecting Clinical Care and Community Interventions


Research demonstrates that clinical and educational contraceptive services as well as behavioral interventions are needed to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy.  In this recorded webinar hosted by the Office of Population Affairs, Title X-funded family planning providers shared lessons learned about how to provide high quality clinical services to teens. Providers also described ways that clinical providers and community-based organizations that provide behavioral interventions can work together to reach and effectively serve teens in their communities.  The webinar slides and recording are available at http://www.fpntc.org/training-and-resources/webinar-recording-successful-teen-pregnancy-prevention-connecting-clinical.
