As a teen or young adult, it is important for you to learn how to be more in charge of your own health. This means talking about health issues. It also means figuring out what you can do to take better care of yourself when it comes to your health. This may involve such things as taking your own medicine, taking care of your teeth, feeling good about yourself as a person and more. Your family can guide you along the way as you learn how to make good health choices and informed medical decisions.
