Review of Gov’t Teen Health Website States Significant Inaccuracies Require Overall Revisions

At issue is the HHS sponsored website,, launched March 25, 2005, which is promoted as “part of a new national public education campaign to provide parents with the information, tools and skills they need to help their teens make the healthiest choices.” Following are links to documents posted today on the Minority Office website of the Government Reform Committee:

  • Rep. Waxman’s Letter to HHS Secretary Leavitt (12 pages, PDF) documents inaccuracies on the site and requests that it be removed and replaced with a site reflective of scientific data.
  • Links to the reviews and recommendations of four scientific experts in the field, all in PDF, are available here.
