The Next Chapter of the IAAH Young Professionals Network

The International Association for Adolescent Health (IAAH) Young Professionals Network (YPN) is a ~800 strong community of students, trainees, and early career professionals (including health care providers, researchers, public health practitioners, advocates, scientists, social workers, pharmacists) within 10 years in their respective field, who are interested in improving the health of adolescents locally, nationally, and globally. The YPN provides a forum to share training opportunities in adolescent health and supports networking, mentorship, and leadership development.

The IAAH YPN is led by the Co-Chairs and Committee Officers who have an interface with the IAAH Council so that the IAAH YPN have a strong voice within the Council and vice versa, in order to support the development of future leaders in adolescent health.

2022 – 2024 IAAH YPN goals

  • To provide diverse opportunities for the IAAH YPN to advance their knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of adolescent health.
  • To promote collaboration and build relationships between the IAAH YPN and more experienced professionals and leaders in adolescent health including relevant young professional led adolescent health organizations.
  • To provide a collective voice advocating for adolescent health and wellbeing.
