The teen pregnancy rate has decreased dramatically both in Texas and nationwide in the last decade, and researchers attribute much of the decline to improved use of birth control among adolescents. This webinar will outline reproductive services available to adolescents, including evidence-based family planning methods and standards of care. It will cover common misconceptions associated with birth control, outline state and federal funding streams for contraception, and explore barriers to accessing reproductive care for young women.

The webinar is geared towards clinicians, health educators, and youth-serving professionals such as social workers, counselors, and caseworkers who may need to refer teens to care.
