It's Not What You Say, It's How You Say It: Communicating Health Information to Teens - SciComm Lunch & Learn, November 10, 12-1 PM

Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021
Noon-1pm ET

Anyone who has had (or been) a teenager can tell you that intergenerational communication can be a challenge, and this is particularly true with respect to communicating health information. The current global pandemic has only amplified these challenges, as teens have experienced unprecedented isolation and a total disruption of their usual social structures.

In the November installment of “SciComm Lunch-and-Learn”, Duke University adolescent medicine specialist and science communicator, Dr. Richard Chung, and Arin Parsa, a 14-year-old teen health advocate and founder of Teens for Vaccines (teensforvaccines.org), will discuss key strategies for communicating health information to teens. They will discuss the complexities of teens’ lives, including development, peer and media influences, the internet, and their burgeoning autonomy, and how high quality information can be delivered most effectively to teens during this critical time of life.
