Event Overview
Welcome message:

Caring for adolescents brings joys and challenges and requires us to listen and be creative, flexible and open as we develop new skills to meet their changing needs.

Reaching our goal of keeping our teens healthy and safe requires that we constantly evaluate our approach to common issues and concerns faced by our adolescent patients and their families. The 13th annual Adolescent Health Care conference, presented in collaboration with the Division of Adolescent Medicine at Boston  Children's Hospital, will address key issues affecting your clinical and psychosocial care of adolescents, providing you with tools for empowering teens to take control of their health and life. Presented by a faculty of key opinion leaders and clinicians "in the trenches," this conference is certain to make a difference in the adolescent care you provide.
