This adolescent health event is sponsored by partners participating in the Accelerating Clinical and Translational Research program, called ACCEL and the Brandywine School District. ACCEL partners include the University of Delaware, Christiana Care Health System, Nemours/A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children and the Medical University of South Carolina. ACCEL is focused on improving the health and wellness of all Delawareans. ACCEL aims to do this by creating partnerships between health researchers and communities to conduct research of mutual interest and benefit. It also aims to disseminate important research findings.
Our target audience is teens, parents, educators and interested community members. The presentations will be led by health professionals with expertise on research about the teen brain and current health issues facing teens today. An interactive discussion, including Q & A will follow the presentations. Before and after the presentations, attendees will visit exhibitor tables to access adolescent health information and resources provided by local agencies.
