New Content on Green Living, Obesity, Genetic Diseases
Teen Health & Wellness is excited to announce the addition of new "hot topic" content areas, including green living and obesity. The database tackles these urgent issues by offering a new section on green/environmentally friendly living as well as expanded coverage on obesity for teens. Other new entries include enhanced coverage of issues such as autism, sickle cell anemia, school violence, and domestic violence. School and public libraries report an increased demand for concise and well-researched information on these critical subjects, and Teen Health & Wellness provides anytime, anywhere access for teens and young adults searching for help.

Wisconsin Library Services, an independent consortium offering support services to libraries, recently named Teen Health & Wellness to their list of Don't Miss Databases of 2008--databases that made them and their customers say, "Wow!" Wisconsin Library Services says:
"Written in a teen-friendly vernacular, Teen Health & Wellness fills the void of mental and physical health information available specifically for teens. With remote access available with every subscription, preteens and teens can search for answers they want privately ... on practically every health topic you can think of. School Library Journal says Teen Health & Wellness is 'Ground-breaking ... A+... a definite must-have for all high school and public libraries.' We wholeheartedly agree."
Pamunkey Regional Library is one of the latest libraries to take advantage of the valuable Teen Health & Wellness RSS Feed feature. On their Web site's homepage, the Hanover, VA, library is using RSS, otherwise known as Really Simple Syndication, to share with their patrons the latest content from the Teen Health & Wellness database. Teen Health & Wellness RSS feeds are based on content published on the database and are updated continually. Three RSS feeds--"In the News," "Dr. Jan's Corner," and "Did You Know?"--are currently available for subscribers to access.
"In the News" is a great way to share up-to-date information on the latest health and wellness news and how it impact's teens' lives, while "Dr. Jan's Corner" offers the latest Q&A as real teens submit questions to our resident teen and family therapist. "Did You Know?" provides interesting, surprising and just plain weird facts from the world of health and wellness.
To subscribe to any of the RSS feeds offered by Teen Health & Wellness, simply click on the RSS Feeds link at the bottom of the homepage and select the feeds you would like to subscribe to.
In a recent homepage poll, Teen Health & Wellness asked teens: Have you had to get a job for extra cash because of the current economic crisis?
The majority of teens say: No. Only about one quarter (26%) report having to seek employment in light of the current economic crisis, while more than one half (55%) claim that they haven't had to get a job. Less than a quarter (17%) of respondents report already having a job.
