September is Cancer Awareness Month
Although cancer is less prevalent in adolescents, healthy prevention can start in the teenage years. Cancer prevention includes: wearing sunscreen, avoiding tobacco products, getting routine physicals and staying current on recommended vaccinations, including the vaccine to prevent the Human Papillomavirus. At Teen Health Connection, our team is working to educate teens and their families on ways to stay healthy. Sign up for our text messaging campaign or subscribe to the monthly e-newsletter to learn more ways to stay healthy.
