Published earlier this year in The Huffington Post, CDC Injury Center Director Dr. Debra Houry’s editorial touches on the widespread nature of teen dating violence—and how it’s never too early to begin the discussion about healthy relationships.
The editorial also promotes teen dating violence findings from a CDC survey of high school students analyzed in a recent issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics.
