Description

Teenage pregnancy can lead to a number of negative consequences related to child health and well-being. Teenage pregnancy in the Dayton area is a continuing issue from year to year. It is just one effect of social inequality that stems from people living in poverty with limited access to adequate education and opportunities. The goal of my poster is to identify the past and current trends of teenage pregnancy in Dayton, as well as give sight to what could be done in the future to improve what needs to be adjusted. There are multiple approaches that I will explore that could be used to ameliorate teenage pregnancy. To start, we must fully understand the extent of the issue and what the root causes of teenage pregnancy are.
