Maternal & Family Health Services, Inc. (MFHS) announces the launch of a new quarterly online publication for educators, advocates and parents of teens via the SafeTeens.org website. This quarterly newsletter will keep educators up to date on the latest health news and resources for use in the classroom, as well as tips for parents on how to adapt health lessons for discussion at home.
SafeTeens.org is a digital resource on healthy living and safe sex for Pennsylvania teens. Designed to help teens and young adults learn how to make healthy choices to protect their futures, the site, which covers topics such as safe sex, relationships, peer pressure, nutrition, and more, is designed to empower teens to make positive choices and connect with reliable health information and services, while communicating messages of responsibility, health and wellness.
The new publication, Q: For Advocates & Educators, is designed to help adults who work with teens use the material on the website effectively in their lesson plans and activities. Q will be sent out quarterly via email. Those interested in receiving the quarterly can sign up for it on the resource corner page of SafeTeens.org. The inaugural issue of Q is also available to view on the web. All new signups through the month of May will be entered into a drawing to win a SafeTeens Educator’s Prize Pack.
