October 11, 2006

The Washington County Health Department received a $50,000 grant from the Quality Health Foundation, the mission arm of the Delmarva Foundation.

The grant is for the health department's "Teen Pregnancy Prevention Multimedia Campaign in Washington County" program.

The money will allow the health department to institute a multimedia social marketing campaign to address the high incidence of teen births in the county.

The health department's family planning clinics will serve 800 teens, and the media outlets and educational resources will reach an estimated 18,000 teens and 30,000 adults in Western Maryland.
