126 Building a Partnership to Improve Health Literacy in Detained Youth
Using an innovative partnership model, nursing faculty from a large urban university and administrators and health care providers from a juvenile justice facility develop programming to improve health literacy for detained adolescents. Graduate nursing students and faculty provide developmentally appropriate programming on topics such as sexual health, drug abuse/naloxone administration, mindfulness, and career opportunities in health care. Evaluation suggests an improvement of participants’ knowledge. This program was modified during the COVID-19 pandemic.
