Adolescent preventive care study featured on USA Today website

A recent UCSF study about teens and preventive health care was featured on the USA Today website on April 1, 2009. The study found that only 38 percent of adolescents in the United States had a preventive doctor’s visit in the past year. The story includes quotes from Charles Irwin, MD, director of the Division of Adolescent Medicine at UCSF Children’s Hospital, and Sally Adams, RN, PhD, a specialist in adolescent medicine.

The study also was reported by KCBS-Radio, California Healthline, Forbes.com and NBC-TV affiliate stations across the country.
