48. Associations Between Eating Disorders and Sociodemographic Factors in Adolescent Patients Since the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to significant increases in mental health related diagnoses in adolescents, including eating disorders. The perception of young, non-minoritized, upper-class females as the stereotypical demographic in the diagnosis of eating disorders has been challenged. Disparities in access, diagnosis and treatment exist for adolescents with eating disorders. The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on disparities in eating disorder diagnosis has not yet been described in an adolescent population. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

49. Understanding the National Burden of Eating Disorders Using Years of Life Lost
The global burden of disease due to eating disorders (ED) has increased rapidly, resulting in decreased quality of life, increased health system costs, and premature morbidity and mortality. Years of Life Lost (YLL) is a novel epidemiologic measurement that gives weight to premature deaths among younger individuals, which can reveal how earlier incidence and increased premature mortality of a creates significant burdens in younger persons. The primary aim of this study is to quantify and describe trends in the mortality attributable to eating disorders in the United States between the years of 1999 and 2020 using YLL. (Sou...

50. Barriers to Screening and Diagnosis of Eating Disorders in the Pediatric Primary Care Setting
The primary care setting offers a unique opportunity for the early intervention and management of pediatric eating disorders (EDs). Previous studies and reviews of medical education, however, have demonstrated a lack of adequate training in their identification and treatment as many eating disorders often go underrecognized, particularly in patients who do not fit the common demographic, body-type, or symptom profile of a patient with an ED. Given the various limitations on a provider ’s time, we hypothesized that certain biases may be at play in which patients a provider might elect to screen for eating disorders and th...

53. The Effect of Pre-Admission Energy Balance on Short-Term Medical Outcomes: Findings From the Study of Refeeding to Optimize Inpatient Gains (STRONG)
Negative energy balance contributes to bradycardia and other vital sign instabilities warranting hospitalization in adolescents and young adults (AYA) with anorexia nervosa (AN) or atypical anorexia nervosa (AAN). However, the effect of pre-admission, self-reported exercise and dietary restriction on short-term refeeding outcomes has not been examined. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

55. Use of Telehealth for the Provision of Outpatient Treatment for Patients With Eating Disorders During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Eating disorder (ED) diagnoses and hospitalizations and the use of telehealth rose substantially during the COVID-19 pandemic. This resulted in many adolescent patients with EDs receiving care via telehealth rather than in-person. The aim of our study was to determine if adolescent patients and/or their parents/guardians found telehealth visits to be an acceptable alternative to in-person visits with respect to their outpatient ED care. We were particularly interested in evaluating how past experience with office visits, as well as age, would affect participants ’ responses. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

56. Closing the Gap for Non-Adolescent Medicine Clinicians: Building Capacity for Care of Adolescents in Gender Health, Eating Disorders and Reproductive Health
The sexual health needs of adolescents and young adults (AYA) continue to evolve in the current socio-political climate, extending far beyond the number of adolescent medicine (AM) trained clinicians available to provide specialized care. To meet this demand, addressing knowledge gaps among clinicians outside of AM is critical. The New York State (NYS) AIDS Institute ’s Clinical Education Initiative Sexual Health Center of Excellence (CEI SHCOE) educates NYS clinicians on sexual health topics. In Fall 2021, the CEI SHCOE partnered with the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) Division of AM to increase the capac...

57. Respiratory Viral Infections in the Post-Pandemic Landscape: An Evolving Epidemiological Profile Important in the Adolescent Population
Following the advent of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in 2020, accompanied by the implementation of nonpharmaceutical interventions and various mitigation measures within the United States, the incidence of other respiratory viruses experienced a noteworthy decline during the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 Fall-Spring seasons. However, it is imperative to recognize that while individuals aged under 21 years accounted for less than 2% of reported COVID-19 cases during the pandemic, those with underlying medical conditions may still be susceptible to serious sequelae.

Comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) education in K-12 public schools in the US has been shown to improve SRH outcomes including lowered rates of unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. However, implementation of SRH education faces structural barriers including hostile political environments, de-prioritization in favor of literacy and math instruction, lack of coordination across agencies, lack of high-quality professional development for educators, and lack of evidence-based frameworks to guide implementation.

Given the disproportionately high rates of STIs among adolescents in the Deep South, a closer look at sexual health education – a fundamental element of sexual health –is crucial. Utilizing the Population-Intervention-Comparison-Outcome (PICO) question formation model, we explored the literature for school-based sex-ed for children and adolescents in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina to incre ase understanding of the current policies, practice, and impact of sexual health education on adolescents in this region.

61. The Role of Rapport Building on Adolescents and Young Adult Research Engagement: An Evaluation from the Push Study
Adolescents and Young Adults (AYA) aged 15 to 34 are frequently targeted for adolescent-focused treatment and prevention interventions due to the high rates of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in this age range. However, most research fails to examine how connection with staff improve AYAs ’ engagement in such interventions. This analysis aimed to better understand how successful rapport building between coaches’ and participants in the Providing Unique Support for Health (PUSH) Study is associated with research engagement.
