BrdsNBz Has Something to Bzzzzz About


North Carolina's BrdsNBz text messaging line - designed to help young people to get confidential, medically-accurate information for questions about sexual health and related topics - has something big to buzz about. BrdsNBz will still keep teens safe and informed by answering the questions that are really on their mind, but it’s gotten an upgrade!

New Look!

'New phone, who dis?' It's the same great service, but BrdsNBz has updated their logo to look a bit more #onfleek. Used in 7 states across the country, this national leader in text messaging for teens was developed right here in North Carolina.

New Website!

This website is made to get sexual health educators and public health professionals buzzing about BrdsNBz. They’ve got all the deets in ONE place. Take a look at BrdsNBz new site to learn more about how your organization can benefit from this text messaging service.

New Service in the Works!

BrdsNBz is testing all the goodness of this service with a new group of young people! The expanded service, Xs N Os, reaches 19-24-year-olds. Xs N Os has the same easy-to-use format and benefits of BrdsNBz but will have a slightly older feel for "older" young adults.
