Adolescent Health

During the transition from childhood to adulthood, adolescents establish patterns of behavior and make lifestyle choices that affect both their current and future health. Young people's behaviors are influenced at the individual, peer, family, school, community, and societal levels.  

To have the most positive impact on adolescent health, we are working together with schools, community organizations, faith-based groups, healthcare providers, and others to provide a comprehensive approach. Providing safe and nurturing environments for Cabarrus County youth can help ensure that adolescents will be healthy and productive members of society.
