Indian-origin researcher's website for teens seeking sexual health advice
Washington, Sept 13 (ANI): An Indian-origin researcher has launched a website named 'Ask A Doc RI' to provide a platform for teenagers seeking reliable information on reproductive health.
"My thought was to bring the information to where the teenagers are, which is on the Internet," says Vinita Goyal, MD, MPH, of Women and Infants' Centre for Women's Primary Care.
"Ask A Doc RI contains a variety of information on contraception and local clinical resources where youth can seek health care."
In addition, the website, which includes links to Healthy Kids Rhode Island and Women and Infants, fields anonymous questions on sexual health from teenagers.
The questions are answered by one of five participating Women and Infants physicians, and the answers are posted online within 72 hours.
In addition to fielding questions on Ask A Doc RI, there are sections on the website containing general information on all available contraceptive options and frequently asked questions about contraception, as well as contact information on local health centres for teens interested in making an appointment or meeting face to face with a provider.
Unique to Ask A Doc RI will be a section with current contraceptive issues brought up by local and national media. Complete information will be supplied so teenagers can make the best decision for their sexual health. (ANI)
