Join this first event of a two-part webinar series, led by the School-Based Health Alliance’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC), to hear youth perspectives on media influences, receive skills-building tools to identify negative impacts and create healthy patterns, and learn how adolescents and adults can work together to develop programming that improves student health outcomes.
