Teen Pregnancy Prevention

LinkedUp at Teen Health Mississippi

LinkedUp’s overall goal is to reduce unintended pregnancies among older teens (ages 18-19) by increasing the contraceptive coverage of teens transitioning out of care from a school-based health clinic (SBHC) or mobile school-based clinic (MSBC) to a community college after leaving high school.
