The Penn State Children’s Hospital Approach to Adolescent Medicine

Teens and adolescents have unique health care issues. Change is a normal part of being a teenager. While teens are maturing physically, they are also developing sexually and going through many powerful emotions. From 11 to adulthood they may need more support for their physical and emotional growth. Education and respect is at the center of all we do to promote good health for teens and their families
