Researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, have determined that pregnancy is common among the city’s female street youth and that risk of pregnancy is significantly associated with length of time on the street and the age at which the youth entered street life. Sheri Findley, a fellow in the hospital’s Division of Adolescent Medicine, will present the findings today in New Orleans, at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies. The meeting runs May 1-5. For interviews during the meeting, contact the press room at (504) 670-8502 or 670-8508. Researchers’ Institutional Contact: Liz Leake (416) 813-5046
