#TeenSummer! Twitter Chat on Adolescent Summer Safety

June 18, 2013

CIRP@CHOP's Flaura Winston MD, PhD and Mark Zonfrillo, MD, MSCE (@safetymd) will be special guests for an upcoming Twitter Chat on Adolescent Summer Safety! For many teens, summer is just getting underway. But increased time spent outdoors also comes with increased safety concerns: Sun exposure, swimming, biking, and hiking can all increase the risk of various adolescent injuries. 

Hosted by the Office of Adolescent Health (@TeenHealthGov), the goal of the chat is to connect those who work with and care about teens to learn more about adolescent summer safety, discuss best practices for safety prevention, and share resources. 

Date and Time: Thursday, June 20th, 2013 from 3:00 – 4:00pm ET. 

Cohosts:  The Center for Disease Control’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (@CDCInjury) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (@NHTSAGov). 

Hashtag: #TeenSummer
