Event Overview
Welcome message:

Mark your calendar and plan to join your colleagues for the SAHM 2014 Annual Meeting in Austin, TX. This is the premier, multidisciplinary, educational event in adolescent medicine and health.

For many years, scientists have struggled with whether human characteristics and diseases are pre-determined by genetics (Nature) or a result of influences of the environment where we live (Nurture). At this meeting, we’ll reject either/or hypotheses and aim to explore in depth the role that both nature and nurture play in allowing adolescents to grow and develop to their fullest potential. Our theme is “Nature and Nurture: Moving to a Deeper Understanding of Adolescent Health.

Register by February 20, 2014 and save!

The program is filled with innovative research, clinical workshops and discussion forums for attendees from diverse disciplines.The 2014 Program Committee is also pleased to announce a variety of new offerings at this year’s meeting that will enhance your experience:

  • Enhanced clinical and professional development offerings with new “tracks” throughout the program to provide attendees with guides to identify areas of interest.
  • Research poster symposia to allow for in depth discussions focusing on key developments in the field, needed future directions and clinical applications.
  • A mix of sessions during the day (i.e. clinical workshops alongside research sessions) to enhance educational opportunities for all members.
  • More flexible scheduling and manageable days: More reasonable start times ensure evenings will be free for networking with colleagues.
  • An exciting, new collaboration with the Society for Research on Adolescence, with a shared session on the evening of March 22nd and enhanced research sessions on March 23rd.
