Learn More About Texas Youth Health at Symposium


Clearly you’re passionate about the health and well-being of Texas’ youth. Do you know who shares your passion?

Your physician colleagues from all over the state.

If you’re interested in learning more about keeping Texas teens healthy and you’d like to make new connections to thought leaders and your peers, make plans to attend the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy’s ninth-annual symposium, set for April 6-8 in San Antonio.

The symposium will provide the latest information, advanced training, and technical support on teen pregnancy prevention and adolescent health. Topics for breakout sessions include contraception, LGBTQ+ issues, rural youth, and sex education.

The gathering is a partnership between the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and Healthy Futures of Texas, a San Antonio based nonprofit organization also working to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy while supporting the development of strong families.

And here’s even more good news, register for the symposium by Feb. 29 for a discount on the registration rate. Register online and use the code “LEAP” in the “discount code” field.

But that’s not all. Free training and counseling on intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants, commonly referred to as long-acting reversible contraceptives or LARCs, will be available on April 6 and 7 in conjunction with the symposium.

Find more information on the symposium on the Texas Campaign’s website, or contact Melanie Chasteen, director of community engagement at the Texas Campaign, at (512) 791-5110 or via email.
