The Adolescent Health Initiative is proud to host their annual Connection Session for leaders in the field of adolescent health. Connection Sessions are day-long conferences that focus on one specific topic in adolescent health. These professional development opportunities aim to connect health professionals to community resources and others in the field. AHI is thrilled to bring you the 3rd annual connection session this October. We hope to see you there!
Thank you to everyone who joined for the 2018 Connection Session! This event featured an informative keynote address, perspectives from the field with Q & A, and interactive, case-based activities.
