SAHM 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting
March 10-12, 2021

Mapping an Agenda to Transform the Future of Adolescent Health

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. ​
