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.

What are attendees from #AHI2021 saying about the event?

  • “Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Don't change a thing. I was so impressed by every breakout session and the keynote speakers. It was just fantastic to be an audience member.”

    #AHI2021 Conference Attendee
  • “Inspiring! Despite the distance, I connected, so well. As a result of culture, most African Americans shy away from discussing sexual matters openly, so I was inspired that such could be discussed in mature settings, bringing together adolescents and practitioners.”

    #AHI2021 Conference Attendee
  • “I absolutely loved it and I think that anytime the youth themselves were able to talk and present it made it that much more powerful.”
