Teen years are exciting and fun, but also challenging and full of a lot of changes. Teens go to school, hang out with friends, play sports and go to dances. But that’s not all! They also make important choices about their future during this transitional time. Many choices teens make will affect their health as they get older. IEHP wants to help ensure teens are making the healthiest choices possible.
