2021 Summer Institute in Adolescent Health
July 26 – July 29, 2021
8:30 am – 12:00 pm Central Time
Join us for the 2021 Virtual Summer Institute in Adolescent Health!
Over the last 18 months, young people have experienced tremendous levels of social change. Today’s adolescents are coming of age amidst a global pandemic, police violence, and social upheaval. These factors combine to amplify existing societal inequities and contribute to increasing mental health concerns among youth.
At the 2021 Adolescent Health Summer Institute, we’ll explore healthy youth development – what it means here and now. Building on four decades of research, we will explore how racial inequity, COVID-19, and mental health concerns are converging to affect young people’s health and healthy development. We will examine social determinants of healthy development, including structural and institutional racism, through the lens of schools, communities, and families. We will reflect on how COVID-19 has and will continue to transform the landscape of adolescent development. We will delve into effective strategies and best practices for supporting adolescents’ mental health and healthy development. We will also examine the importance of engaging young people as problem solvers and powerful change agents in their families, peer groups, and communities.
