South Texas Adolescent Health Summit
2018 Call for Presentations

Deadline for Proposal Submission: Friday, June 22, 2018
The South Texas Adolescent Health Summit will bring together 180 youth-serving professionals from South Texas and the Coastal Bend areas to participate in two days of networking, expert discussions, and presentations with a focus on positive youth development and improving adolescent health.

Summit partners include the Texas Department of State Health Services, Health Service Region 11; the Texas Department of State Health Services Office of Border Public Health; Cameron County Adolescent Health Taskforce; Cameron County Mental Health Task Force; RGV Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition; and The Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. 
The goal of the Summit is to increase knowledge, skills, and abilities among adults who provide services and support to adolescents on the Texas - Mexico Border about adolescent development, positive youth development, adolescent-friendly services, and how to apply the quality components of care through the stages of adolescence.
A limited number of slots are available for individuals and groups interested in conducting presentations at this Summit.  Each session will be limited to 60 minutes. Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to adolescent health and positive youth development. Priority will be given to sessions that address the Summit goal and present research-backed data to support abstract conclusions. 

Please note that presenters will be responsible for travel, accommodations and registration costs associated with the Summit. No honorarium fee is paid to presenters.
