    By American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Adolescent Health
    Edited by Victor C. Strasburger, MD and Megan A. Moreno, MD, MSED, MPH

    Today's teens are often referred to as Digital Natives due to their upbringing immersed in technological tools including smartphones and social media, while most of us who provide healthcare for this group remain at best, digital immigrants. These technologies present both new opportunities and challenges to teens' health, as well as their education and life experiences.

    Pediatricians can play a key role in helping teens and their families navigate critical issues such as balancing online and offline lives, as well as understand links between media and health. This issue, Social Networking & New Technologies is meant to provide pediatricians with knowledge and updates so they feel prepared to have these conversations with patients and families in the busy clinical office setting.

    For each disease, the authors provide a commentary to help health care providers select the best of all antimicrobial choices. Drug descriptions cover all antimicrobial agents available today, and include complete information about dosing regimens.
