Adolescent Medicine & the HHT Center

The specialty of adolescent medicine has developed in response to the unique health care needs of adolescents. Knowledge of the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social changes that adolescents undergo, as well as the disease processes that occur during adolescence, is vital when caring for patients in this age group. Typical concerns for adolescents that we see include reproductive health, depression, anxiety and eating disorders.

Mission Statement

Provide care for patients aged 12-21 years and serve as a resource for health care professionals with questions or other needs related to adolescent health care.

Provide teaching in adolescent medicine.

Develop areas of clinical research in adolescent medicine & collaborate with groups to improve the health of our youth.
