Hollywood Teen Community Project

Congratulations and farewell to the Hollywood Teen Community Project. After 8 years of activism and program activities around lowering teen pregnancy rates, the project has closed its doors. (The original grant, from the California Wellness Foundation, was only for a limited time.) Located in the Adolescent Medicine division of Children's Hospital Los Angeles, the program was enormously visible and successful. During the time it was in operation, teen pregnancy declined by two-thirds. It couldn't have happened without the staffing or support of Susan Rabinowitz, Jenna Baumann, Tracy Levine and many others, too. Thank you!
