Annual Conference on Adolescent Health

Over the Years

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

We are thrilled 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.
