American Academy of Pediatrics Study Documents Early Puberty Onset In Boys
Our study conducted by our PROS practitioners and colleagues at CORNET and NMAPedsNet in 41 states has documented that boys in the U.S. are experiencing the onset of puberty six months to two years earlier than reported in previous research.
The article entitled “Secondary Sexual Characteristics in Boys: Data from the Pediatric Research in Office Settings Network” was published in the November 2012 Pediatrics and was announced at the AAP National Conference & Exhibition in New Orleans on October 20th.
Our participating practitioners and practices were cited with deep gratitude by the SSCIB team in the acknowledgement section at the end of the publication. These results also received wide recognition and coverage in the national newspapers and media.
