Training Video: How to Use our Adolescent Health Observance “Quick-Guides”

There are many national health observance days, weeks, or months. The savvy health professional can use these observances as opportunities to promote health messages, programs, and policies. We created 26 two-page Adolescent Health Observance “Quick-Guides” to guide adolescent health promotion efforts. This brief training video goes over the sections of the Adolescent Health Quick- Guides, how to use them, and where to find them. The Quick-Guide User Guide (PDF) is also available for download.

Please share these documents and consider tagging the Centers responsible for creating them: @UMN_MCH & @SahrcUMN. We are continuously updating the Quick-Guides to include new resources; if you have a suggested edit or resource, please email us at
