For more than 25 years, APPCNC has worked hard to keep North Carolina up-to-date on the latest and best in pregnancy prevention and adolescent health. We’ve also built up a great network of partners across the country. You may have attended our training workshops, used our text line, or read about us in The New York Times.
Behind the scenes, we’re a group of nerdy but fun professionals who share a deep commitment to adolescent health and development. Walk through our door, and you’re likely to find us gossiping about the latest episode of Teen Mom, discussing some new tidbit of research (and how it was reported), or geeking out about important public policy.
This new blog is an invitation to our watercooler. We hope to give you a different perspective on teen pregnancy and prevention in science, pop culture, and politics. We invite you to be a part of the conversation – not just a reader – by commenting, tweeting, liking, and sharing. If there’s something we can do to make this blog better, please let us know. We hope you enjoy sharing this space with us!
