Dr. Sleath and team from School of Pharmacy create a new website designed to empower teens
A new website (iuveo.org) designed by and for teens has just launched, allowing teenagers and their peers to receive immediate health and wellness tips. “Information for the Evolving Teenager,” or IUVEO, was created to share information and resources about a variety of relevant medical conditions and situations that teenagers may experience at this stage in their lives. With easy to navigate pages dedicated to asthma, ADHD, vaping/smoking, diabetes, depression, and more, some pages also contain phone numbers for immediate assistance. Teenagers can print a question prompt list, check the questions they want to ask the doctor, and use it during visits.
This website was funded by a grant from The Duke Endowment and The Eshelman Institute for Innovation (EII). To make this project a reality, the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy collaborated directly with two teen advisory boards. The boards included teens from two parts of the state, who contributed ideas for the content and layout of the website.
