Women's and Maternal Health
There are many assumptions about the population of pregnant and parenting teens, including if they and their children have the ability to succeed. This workshop will explore what the research says are the best approaches to use to help guide this population, and their children, not only succeed, but thrive. Lessons learned and program best practices from Teen Outreach Pregnancy Services will be shared in relation to these assumptions. Additionally, best practices concerning preventing a rapid repeat pregnancy for this population will be discussed. Workshop participants can expect to be challenged to create a plan of action to integrate key concepts to improve outcomes for the population they serve. Resources for reaching this population will also be shared.
