SAHM Virtual Chat: Emerging from the COVID-19 Pandemic: Assessing and Implementing Best Practices for Adolescent Sexual Health Services

Monday, August 2, 2021; Noon-1 p.m. ET 

As adolescents return to post-pandemic activities, clinicians, researchers, and educators should prepare to address long-standing sexual health inequities as well as those that were exacerbated by social factors associated with COVID-19. In this discussion, the HIV/STI Committee will share lessons learned while caring for adolescent sexual health needs during the pandemic, helpful tools used to promote sexual health, and what comes next as we prepare to respond to national plans to reduce sexually transmitted infections across the U.S. We will also highlight some practical tips for successful implementation of best practice approaches during this time of meeting demands for unaddressed sexual health needs.

Panelists: Mary Romano, MD, MPH, FSAHM Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital & Sarah Wood, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
 
Moderator: Kamila A. Alexander, PhD, MPH, RN Johns Hopkins School of Nursing
