About This Website

Knox Teen Health, a project of the Knox Adolescent Partners in Prevention Initiative (KAPPI), is on a mission to improve teen health in Knox County! KAPPI is a community coalition working with Knox County Schools, parents, and youth-serving agencies since 1991. Through the Knox Teen Health project, we want teens, parents, and teachers talking with each other about ways to have healthy minds, bodies, and relationships.

Knox Teen Health is published by the Knox County Health Department. We welcome teen blog submissions. For more information, contact [email protected].
