Tuesday, July 19 3:00-4:00 PM ET

Teens, Health and Technology: How Teens Search for Health Information in the Digital Age

Presented by Heather Montague, MA, Doctoral Candidate, Center on Media and Human Development, Northwestern University

Teens seek health information from a variety of sources. Now that many teens have access to computers, smartphones and tablets, health information is nearly constantly available to them, at the push of a button. As school health professionals and educators seek to reach these students, it is highly valuable to teach them with this digital context in mind.

At the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to

  • Articulate where teens seek health information (both digitally and with traditional sources).
  • Understand how digital health information impacts teen health behavior.
  • Analyze how to reach teens, considering their preferred sources of health information
