The 2016 HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Conference took place in Baltimore, MD, on July 19-21, 2016. This year’s conference, Connecting the Dots: Collaborating to Achieve Lasting Impacts for Youth, invited federally funded teen pregnancy prevention (TPP) and adolescent sexual health grantees to share ideas and lessons learned from their own programs, particularly as they relate to reaching vulnerable youth.
On April 26-27, 2016, the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (APP) Program hosted an in-person training on the overlapping nature of adolescent risk. The training sought to broaden grantees’ knowledge and awareness on complex issues that vulnerable youth often encounter.
