OCTOBER 22-24, 2018 | SAN DIEGO, CA

Mind-boggling. Distracting. Exhausting. Disheartening. Do these words strike a chord for you? You are not alone. Healthy Teen Network and the broader field of adolescent reproductive and sexual health, among other concerned citizens, fear that our hard work to improve the health and well-being of young people through innovative and evidence-based research, practice, and policy will continue to be eroded and twisted. To maintain our progress, we must stand strong and keep youth at the center of our work.

Recognize Outstanding Work with an Award Nomination

Healthy Teen Network is now accepting nominations for the Outstanding Teen Parent and Youth 360° Innovation awards that will be presented at Standing Strong & Keeping Youth at the Center, the 39th annual conference. to be held in San Diego, CA. The purpose of the annual awards program is to recognize programs, groups, and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to promote the health and well-being of youth through personal or professional efforts.
