Rhode Island Site Answers Questions of Sexually Active Teens
September 14, 2011
A new website targeting Rhode Island teens offers the facts about sex and birth control, and it lets youths confidentially pose their own questions to physicians. According to a report on WRNI-FM, the queries are answered by doctors from Women & Infants Hospital. The site, a project of the hospital's Dr. Vinita Goyal and the nonprofit Healthy Kids Rhode Island, lists more than two-dozen health clinics providing services that include contraceptive counseling and STD screening. Researchers also plan outreach work in communities with high rates of teen pregnancy, including Providence, Central Falls, and Woonsocket. For more information, visit www.AskaDocRI.org.
