The Global Teen Health Week Kickoff event is on March 18, from 1:00 – 2:30pm, at The Center For Families, 1225 Montrose Ave, in Bryn Mawr.  It is the official launch to a week of activities and events in more than 75 locations, in dozens of countries, across the globe. Teen Health Week is an annual initiative encouraging teens to take charge of their physical and mental health, and helping them develop a lifetime of healthy habits.

The Kickoff event in Bryn Mawr features a yoga and wellness program for teens and their families, and includes a free yoga mat and t-shirt for the first 200 participants, plus refreshments and other giveaways.  PennCare Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine will serve as the host for this Kick Off Event, as well as serve as Global Sponsor for Teen Health Week.

At the March 18 Kickoff Event, a number of Teen Champions will be recognized, and one will be awarded with a great prize and the title of 2018 Teen Champion.  Organizers are looking to recognize exceptional teens in our local middle schools, high schools, and colleges, who have contributed to the health and well-being of their peers and young people.
