I currently work for Bronx Teens Connection, an adolescent pregnancy prevention program out of the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. We are a community-wide initiative to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health through 4 components: evidence-based sexual health education programs, access to high quality clinical services, community engagement and mobilization, and stakeholder education.
