BE SURE TO ORDER NEW 2016 EDITION!               Before It's Too Late brings home what I have learned in over 25 years "in the trenches" with teens and their parents, both in my OB/GYN practice and through teen pregnancy and STD prevention seminars, talks, articles and interviews. Readers finish the book with less anxiety about the task of educating their teens, a renewed sense of urgency, and concrete, can-do knowledge to guide them in making healthy, wise, and respectful decisions about sexual behavior.  Expert perspective and keen understanding of the issues give Before It's Too Late the weight of medical authority. A lively style and compassionate outlook make this book not only an essential read for parents of teens, but a pleasurable one.

From the Author:

Writing Before It's Too Late was truly a labor of love.  The impetus for this book began during the ten year period that I chaired a Teen Pregnancy and STD Prevention Program in Los Angeles.  I saw parents and teens come together and begin to communicate truthfully and movingly about a subject that is often difficult to talk about.  It became all too clear to me that educating parents and teens about teen sexual health was one of the most rewarding experiences that I, as an OB/GYN physician, could ever imagine.  Readers of Before It's Too Late will come away with a new language to use in communicating about this very important issue.

About the Author:

Sheila Overton, MD, a board certified OB/GYN for more than 25 years, passionately advocates prevention of teen pregnancy and STDs. She has helped parents and teens transform the way they think and talk about sexual health. Her awards include the Los Angeles County Commendation for Excellence in Women's Health. She is married, blessed with two adult children, and practices in Maryland. Treacy Colbert is a writer and editor specializing in health care and business.
