Mapping an Agenda to Transform the Future of Adolescent Health


March 10-14, 2021
Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel 
700 Aliceanna St. 
Baltimore, MD 21202

 

As SAHM navigates this unprecedented pandemic we understand that the safety of our attendees  is essential and that we may need to pivot from a live to a virtual conference.  SAHM is seeking workshop and institute proposals that can be presented for a live activity, but can be readily adapted to a virtual one if needed.  

 

In the next decade, important forces will affect adolescent health and wellbeing globally. Some of the questions we need to consider as adolescent health professionals are: What strategies should we develop and scale that will transform health outcomes and promote equity? How will we address the adverse effects of COVID-19 and future pandemics on adolescent health? How can we harness advances in science and technology - including artificial intelligence and genomics - to improve adolescent health? How can we advocate most effectively for issues such as climate change that will impact adolescent health in the future? How can we maximize our understanding of adolescents across different cultures and their unique strengths and needs? Finally, how can SAHM create the workforce of the future by considering demand for adolescent health services and innovations in education and professional development? 

 

During this meeting we invite multidisciplinary professionals to connect, engage, and generate strategies that ensure all young people achieve healthy and meaningful lives in the next decade and beyond. 

Presentations that were accepted for AM20 are welcome for submission to AM21.  All submissions will be peer reviewed.

 

Coming Soon: Call for Proposals for the SAHM 2021 Annual Meeting

 

In a “normal” year, you would have already received the call for proposals for next year’s annual meeting. But this isn’t a normal year and the SAHM 2021 Annual Meeting call for proposals has been delayed. We will be announcing details soon.
 
We are planning the 2021 Annual Meeting as an in-person event March 10-13, 2021, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. However, we are preparing for alternatives should the need arise. We appreciate your patience as we plan around this unprecedented event.
