BoulderShares was delighted to provide copies of its Adolescent Health Card to the girls attending camp as a means of empowering them to “Protect Their Health.”
In collaboration with public-health experts, BoulderShares® developed and distributed an adolescent health card to empower youth to take control of their health, maintain control of their health records, and increase access to vital information. The card allows youth to track and monitor their weight, vaccination records, and blood pressure as well as log any educational seminars they attend and visits to medical facilities they make. Areas to record key contact information and the individual’s blood time are present, as well. This card – in its original comparatively pared-down version – was created and used originally by more than 5,000 young female soccer players in the Jeremie region of Haiti before BoulderShares and public-health experts decided to spearhead an overhaul effort to make the card more useful for the majority of Haitian youth, overall.
