Annual Conference on Adolescent Health

Over the Years!

The Adolescent Health Initiative is proud to have celebrated 7 great years of our Annual Conference on Adolescent Health!

We are thrilled to be able to bring together a global, multidisciplinary audience of adolescent health professionals year after year. Our vision is to transform the health care landscape to optimize adolescent and young adult health and well-being. We take great pride in a conference we believe helps to achieve this goal.

We hope you can join us for our 8th annual event taking place on May 12-13 2022.
