Talking About Health

A Dialogue with Health Professionals and Youth Pastors

The journey through adolescence toward adulthood includes both opportunities and challenges for health. The developing adolescent brain is faced with making decision regarding risky actions or healthy behaviors influenced by their social milieu. Youth ministers and health professionals working with adolescents have a unique opportunity to help teenagers weather life’s challenges through addressing physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Given the influence of youth ministers on adolescent lives and the knowledge of health professionals working with youth, this workshop is designed to create a context for dialogue and lay a foundation for collaborative efforts to strengthen the health of adolescents.
