Healthstyles Explores the Epidemic of STDs among Adolescents



Sexually transmitted disease (STDs) are on the rise among adolescents nationwide. The reasons for this increase and what can be done to stem it are the focus of this week’s Healthstyles program that will air on WXMR-FM (; 100.7 FM) at 11:00 AM on January 30, 2012. Producer and Moderator Diana Mason, PhD, RN, interviews Drs. Carol Roye, EdD, RN, PNP, assistant dean for research at Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing and a pediatric nurse practitioner who cares for adolescent girls, and Kellie Volcy, DNP, APN-C, instructor of nursing at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and a women’s health nurse practitioner. They discuss why it’s a concern and what can be done to reverse the trend.
