Teen Pregnancy & Prevention Partnership Annual Conference

August 9 - 11, 2022

The 2022 conference will explore the various ways in which the identities that adolescents hold impact their health, wellbeing, and specific needs for sexual and reproductive health that truly honors who they are. We’ll host sessions focused on menstrual equity, cultural queerness, research as prevention, partnering with parents, evidence-based strategies for talking to young people about abortion, trauma stewardship and self-care, and moving from shame to empowerment with stakeholder conversations.

You will receive content from local and national experts in the safety of your own home or office with our virtual format. Participants will have access to 8+ hours of live sessions over three days plus debrief sessions with other conference participants.

Conference participants are encouraged to attend the live sessions. Breaks are built into the agenda, but recordings will also be made available for anyone with a paid registration.
