NYSCSH Infographic Cover

The CDC has released the 2019 Youth Risk Behavior Results which share what youth in grades 9-12 say about their health practices. The information provides a powerful look at risk-factors that can be addressed to decrease long-term health consequences.  

The NYSCSH conducts the YRBS and the SHP for NYS. We have taken the data NYS schools have provided and created a packet of infographics that highlights key health risk behaviors and resources school staff, students, and parents can use to reduce them. CDC information on the links between health and academics is also provided.
