What an amazing time we had last month at Youth 360°: How & Where Youth Live, Learn, & Play Matters, Healthy Teen Network’s 36th Annual National Conference! Hundreds of adolescent health professionals from all around the country–and beyond–gathered in Baltimore to learn, share ideas and knowledge, make new connections and strengthen existing ones, and build skills to bring back to their work.
From the Pre-Conference Institutes to the welcome from Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen and opening keynote from Dr. Steve Perry, from the competitive fun of Youth 360° The Game to the insightful and inspiring Rewiring Our Approach plenary, to the breadth of experiences and approaches shared during the closing plenary–and all the workshop and roundtable sessions throughout–Youth 360° left us all with ideas on how we can continue to better support youth to thrive. We cannot thank everyone enough for being part of such a wonderful event!
