We are pleased to announce the Youth Empowerment Solutions is featured in this month’s Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicator Series.

Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators is a publication from the Department of Health and Human Services. The Leading Health Indicators were selected to communicate high-priority health issues and actions that can be taken to address them. To highlight these issues, Healthy People began focusing on one LHI topic each month starting in 2012.

“Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators?” provides an overview of the LHI topic, including the most recent data and trends, and showcases states, communities, or organizations that are addressing the LHIs in innovative ways.

Many thanks to all of the schools, organizations and individuals who have implemented and supported the YES program over the years.
