Each year, SAHM has a call for applications for Student Travel Scholarships for the annual meeting. Awards consist of funds to offset travel costs to the SAHM annual meeting and a complimentary subscription to the Journal of Adolescent Health for one year. Your donation will assist the adolescent health and medicine leaders of tomorrow to forge their path today. 


The annual meeting brings together over 800 adolescent health professionals from a variety of backgrounds from around the world; clinicians, researchers, nurses, social workers, psychologists and plenty more. Networking is a valuable asset at annual meetings for these students and SAHM members are eager to offer help where they're able since everyone has been a student at some point. Students not only get $500 to help with travel to the meeting but free registration for the full meeting as well, a $400 value. 

I came to SAHM looking for a professional home, for a community of interdisciplinary individuals who share an excitement and passion for adolescent and young people health and well-being. If my attendance at my first SAHM Annual Meeting in 2017 was any indication, I think I found one! The people I met who are a part of SAHM are inspirational and so welcoming.
