CPC Fellow Halpern appears on WUNC's The State of Things: NC Teen Pregnancies at Decades Low, Thanks in Part to Contraception

Oct 12, 2017

Carolyn Tucker Halpern was interviewed by Frank Stasio, host of WUNC's The State of Things about the historic low teen birth rate in North Carolina. Halpern is a Carolina Population Center Faculty Fellow and is a UNC professor and chair of the Department of Maternal and Child Health in the Gillings School of Global Public Health.

"For teenagers aged 15-19, the birth rate has fallen 62 percent since 1996. National research shows this decline is due in large part to increased use of contraception and better access to long-acting contraception."
