Puberty Today: Helping Families Navigate Puberty in a Changing World

Join Columbia experts in pediatrics, endocrinology, and psychiatry for a conversation about what’s new in our understanding of puberty. Panelists will address:

  • Signs of puberty and normal ages of development
  • Why puberty is occurring earlier than in prior decades
  • The effects of early puberty on mental health
  • Racial and ethnic differences in the age of puberty onset
  • Entering puberty with social media as a backdrop
  • What parents at home can do—and pediatricians in the office can counsel—to prepare the whole family for puberty.
