Roles, Relationships, & Relevance in the Changing Landscape of Adolescent Health
November 14-16, 2016
JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa
The landscape of adolescent sexual and reproductive health is not immune to the changing winds of politics, economics, demographics, and society’s values and beliefs. Nearly every aspect of our work supporting the health and well-being of young people feels the impact of these changes. Whether it means expanding our mission, rebranding our organizations, building our internal capacity, or embracing technology, we must ask ourselves: How will our roles evolve during times of change? How will our relationships transform? How do we stay relevant as the environment around us, the ground beneath us, shifts? Adolescent health professionals from across the country gathered to engage in this critical conversation.

October 13-16, 2015
Lord Baltimore Hotel | Baltimore
Healthy Teen Network fosters a national community where all young people are supported and empowered to thrive. Because of our extensive experience promoting evidence-based programs and approaches combined with key findings from multiple key informant interviews, Healthy Teen Network promotes a social ecological health promotion frame, we call Youth 360°, to move beyond focusing solely on individual behavior to consider the many factors—such as connection to community or caring adults, hopes and dreams for the future, or education and employment opportunities—that influence health and well-being outcomes, so that all young people may thrive.
Synergy: Achieving More Together
October 21-24, 2014
Hyatt Austin | Austin, Texas
Healthy Teen Network strongly believes that the key to success, to promoting sexual and reproductive health and well-being among youth is Synergy. Synergy—the coming together of individuals, groups, programs, organizations, states, and nations to create an impact that is much greater and more profound than what any entity could achieve individually—is what is needed to reduce persistent health disparities and sustain the successes we have already achieved in the field of adolescent sexual and reproductive health.
