Anne M. Teitelman’s early work as a nurse practitioner and her dissertation on adolescent girls set her on a course of research, teaching, and clinical practice focused on improving the life trajectories of marginalized adolescent girls and young women. Much of her research focuses on understanding the context within which they make health decisions, especially about their sexual health.
