Straight Talk is back — with a focus on how teens can develop their own “game plan” for success in life.

The Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation and Florida Blue have partnered again to bring the Straight Talk… Teens & Success program to homes throughout the region from June 7-14. The television program is a forum for teens and parents.

Jaguars cornerback Derek Cox, running back Rashad Jennings and ROAR cheerleader Samantha Snyder will co-host the program.

Four local young adults will discuss how they overcame obstacles with the co-hosts and a live studio audience of 30 middle and high school students. They show will also feature adolescent health expert Dr. Linda Dinerman, MD, and legal expert the Honorable Libby Senterfitt.

Topics that the panel addresses include: teen pregnancy, drugs, underage drinking and smoking and cyber bullying. The show encourages teen-parent communication to deal with these issues.
