Young Adults

At the State Adolescent Health Resource Center (SAHRC), much of our work focuses on adolescents, defining adolescence as ages 10-24 (early, middle and late). While the definition captures young adults in the "late adolescence" stages between ages 18 and 24, there is good reason to think about our role in supporting young adults.  Join us for this three-part webinar series to learn more about why young adults are unique and what public health can do to support young adult health and health care needs.
