2012 Adolescent Health Summit 

The overall goal of The North Carolina Metamorphosis Project (NCMP), funded by The Duke Endowment, is to improve adolescent health, health care, life-long trajectories of health, and transitions to adulthood in North Carolina. NCMP does this by increasing awareness of the unmet health needs of North Carolinians between 10 and 20 years of age, and by producing and encouraging implementation of evidence-based recommendations to improve services, programs, and policies addressing high-priority health needs of this age group during the second decade of the 21st century.

It has been almost three years since Healthy Foundations for Healthy Youth: A Report of the NCIOM Task Force on Adolescent Health was published with recommendations on how to improve the health and well-being of adolescents in our state. This summit will provide us the opportunity to share the current health  status of adolescents and the implementation status of  recommendations. There will also be opportunities to think collectively and individually about what can be done to further promote the health and well-being of adolescents.
