Teen Citizen Solutions is an effort to engage Minnesotans ages 13-19 in an online conversation about what's important to the future of health and health care in our state.
Teens are already developing lifestyle choices and habits that could affect your heath and how United States health care works (including its cost) for generations to come. Teens also stand to inherit the long-term impacts of any decisions made about health care today. That's why it's critical that they are involved in the larger Citizen Solutions project. Please spread the word to teens you know about this effort geared specifically toward them, and--if you like--join teens in the discussion. All are welcome.
There are three things teens can do right now:
- Join the discussion: Lauren Gilchrist, Special Advisor to Governor Dayton on Health Reform, has kicked off the discussion by asking teens how they define health, and if Minnesota teens are healthy.
- Apply to be a lead panelist: Teens selected as lead panelists get a $150 stipend for sharing their insights and experiences and spreading the word about the project. Move fast! We’ll be accepting applications through May 21.
- Spread the word: Tell your friends about the project and share the project link: http://health.studentsspeakout.org. Also, like us on Facebook, and tell your friends to join.
