Cracking the Teen Code
Rush Copley Medical Group doctors host survival skills program for parents
Aurora, IL – Preparing teens for adulthood brings many challenges for parents — teaching teens to drive, negotiating curfews and choosing a college. Among these obstacles is helping teens to start managing their own health and wellness. While most teenagers feel invincible, the decisions made in the teen years about alcohol, drugs, healthy eating, fitness, sex and smoking can have long-term consequences.
Join Rush Copley Medical Group family doctors and parents, Brian Adrian, M.D., Ph.D., and Jennifer Kurka, D.O., on Wednesday, February 25 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to learn how to help your teen become more invested in their own health and understand the potential outcomes of choices they make now.
Topics that will be addressed include:
• Alcohol and Drugs
• Safe Sex and STDs
• Texting and Social Media
• Screen Time
• When to See a Doctor
The program will be held at Midwest Center for Advanced Imaging, 4355 Montgomery Road in Naperville. Raffle prizes, refreshments and a gift bag for those who attend. Hurry, space is limited and registration is required.
