SOCIAL NORMS & CULTURE: HONORING EXPERIENCES & PERSPECTIVES

Healthy Teen Network 2017 National Conference

Social norms and culture are powerful influencers on our individual experiences and perspectives. They affect every facet of our personal and professional life—our attitudes and outlook, who and what we value, dismiss, embrace, and fear.

Now is the time for the field of adolescent sexual and reproductive health to come together, have a genuine conversation, and honor all things that make us who we are and shape our unique perspectives. Let’s explore how race, gender identity, religious and spiritual beliefs, age, science and evidence, sexual orientation, laws and policies, geography, technology, ethnic heritage, traditions, economics, and other facets of social norms and culture impact our work with young people, adolescents and young adults who are pregnant and/or parenting, professional colleagues, policymakers, and organizations.

What you can expect at this
Annual National Conference:

 

50+ skills-building Workshop, Roundtable, and Poster Presentations.

Inspiring keynotes and thought provoking plenary sessions.

Intensive Full- and Half-Day Pre-Conference Institutes on a variety of important topics.

Networking opportunities with fellow adolescent health professionals from all around the country and beyond.
