Translating Research into Practice

2022 Conference on Adolescent Health

The Annual Conference on Adolescent Health brings together an interdisciplinary community of health care professionals to share research and best practices aimed at improving adolescent-centered care.

Each year, the event hosts over 450 attendees from nearly all 50 states and a growing international community. The fully virtual event in 2021 brought together 875 attendees. More than half of the sessions at the event are co-facilitated by youth, and the planning of the conference is guided by the AHI Teen Advisory Council (TAC TAC).

The 8th Annual Conference on Adolescent Health is set to be held on May 12-13, 2022, in a hybrid environment. The in-person portion of the event will be held in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest.
