If you were unable to join SAHM in New Orleans for the 2017 Annual Meeting and missed President Dr. Tamera Coyne-Beasley's motivating and engaging speech, you're in luck. The speech, Cultivating 
Connectedness and Equity: A Call to Action for the Global Adolescent Health Community, is available in the September issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health.

The theme for this year's meeting was Cultivating Connections. In her address, Dr. Coyne-Beasley rallied against threats to connectedness, such as discrimination and xenophobia, while stressing the importance of trust, compassion and respect when communicating with our adolescents and young adults in an increasingly globally-connected world.

You can also listen to the audio recording of the speech in its entirety along with the presentation slides at the SAHM website.
