Get Organized: A Guide to Preventing Teen Pregnancy. Acknowledgments

09/01/1999

A project the size and scope of Get Organized:  A Guide to Preventing Teen Pregnancy could not have been accomplished without the hard work and support of many people and organizations. First of all, several offices in the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provided the principal funding for the project through a subcontract from the Urban Institute: the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation; the Office of Population Affairs; the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration; and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies contributed generous support for the design and printing of Get Organized.

The National Campaign expresses its great appreciation to the authors of Get Organized. In addition, we thank the DHHS' Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation for their overall guidance of the project and careful review of the manuscript, particularly Margaret Hamburg, M. D., Barbara Broman, Jeanine Smartt, Elisa Koff, Sonia Chessen, Devon Corneal, and Karin Abramson. The DHHS Interdepartmental Workgroup on the National Strategy to Prevent Teen Pregnancy also provided critical support and review.
