Healthy Youth Survey Under Way

October 22, 2012


Are your kids smoking,

drinking, having sex, eating healthy? The state has just finished conducting a major survey of teens to try and

answer those questions (though you’ll have to ask your kids directly for individual answers).

       To talk about the Healthy Youth Survey, Isaac Kaplan-Woolner Called Tim

Church with the state Department of Health.

       Church said the state has seen a lot of success over recent

years in terms of curbing teen smoking.

       But, Church added, obesity and lack of exercise among teens continues

to be of great concern
