Two local educators win award.

Jeanne Solis, director of the Health Education Services of the Central Louisiana Health Education Center (CLAHEC), along with Dr. Don Yates, LSUA associate professor of Computer Information Systems, teamed up to produce an award winning paper.  

“Mitigating the Economic Impact of Teen Pregnancy on Business” was awarded the Distinguished Paper Award in the Pregnancy and Women’s Health area of the Business and Health Administration section of the Midwest Business Administration Association International. 

The paper was presented at the annual MBAA conference in Chicago.  It describes available evidence based on interventions such as the Be Proud! Be Responsible! program currently used by CLAHEC and presents a framework by which business leaders and the business community can become involved in unplanned teen pregnancy prevention.
