dc.description.abstractThis body of work aspires to explore the avenues by which medical professionals can leverage adolescents' current and historic high social media usage to increase their health literacy. In order to accomplish this, several types of health literacy and the ethical implications of inadequate health literacy are discussed, specifically with adolescents in mind. Next, trends in media and social media usage by adolescents and its effects on this population are determined, and examples of interventions using these means in the literature are analyzed. Finally, the work discusses my personal experience using social media to disseminate health information, challenges our collaborative faces, and future directions for our project.
