83. Multimorbidity Burden Among Adolescents From the Health and Wellbeing Screening Programme, Y-Check, in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe
Multimorbidity (the simultaneous presence of two or more chronic health conditions) is rarely investigated in adolescents, where health interventions are often siloed and disease-specific. Understanding morbidity patterns in this younger age group can inform appropriate interventions to improve health across the life course. We aimed to assess morbidity patterns among adolescents in Chitungwiza city, Zimbabwe. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

84. Young People are not Hard to Reach, Services are: Participatory Development of a Comprehensive School- and Community-Based Health Screening Programme in Zimbabwe
Adolescents continually face individual and structural challenges that limit their access to health services and lead to poorer health outcomes.

87. Determining the Role of Acculturative Stress in Predicting Mental Health Service Use Among Latinx Immigrants
Acculturative stress is an important social determinant of health for Latinx immigrants in the U.S., with multiple studies identifying a link between depression and acculturative stress in this population. However, far fewer studies have examined the specific role and relationship of acculturative stress on mental health service use in this population. Through the lens of Yang ’s 2016 Model of Immigrant Health Service Use, this study aimed to examine the role of acculturative stress in predicting mental health service use in a sample of Latinx immigrants in the Southeast U.S. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

89. Beyond the Bump: Creating and Evaluating a Comprehensive Doula Services Program to Support Adolescents Throughout Pregnancy, Birth, and Postpartum
Pregnant adolescents experience sub-optimal maternal health outcomes such as high rates of preterm births and cesarean sections, and low rates of breastfeeding initiation.

Through youth participatory action research, in partnership with a hospital-based organization in New York City that provides tier-based support and mental health services for youth ages 14-24 (The Uptown Hub), we sought to understand the factors that affect access to primary care for young adults ages 18-24, with the following objectives: ...
