I AM in control
Iowa Department of Public Health, in partnership with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, has launched an interactive website for Iowa teens on information about common teen issues. The website is designed to show teens they have the control over choices they make. Youth wanting to learn about alcohol, tobacco, drugs, body image, bullying, suicide, fitness, nutrition, social circles, teen pregnancy, or sexual health, should log on to this site.
