Convenor’s update on International Adolescent Health Week and more news

By ishinimendis · 3 March 2022

The YPHSIG steering group has already been working behind the scenes to make 2022 a very exciting year; hoping to continue to expand and advocate for adolescents and young people’s health.

International Adolescent Health Week (IAHW) is upon us from 20th to 26th March and there is a call for adolescent champions to help promote IAHW locally under the expert guidance of Dr Ngozi Oketah.

Please email us ASAP to help facilitate this in your area
or Dr Ngozi Oketah ngozi.oketah@nhs.net directly.

Check out Ngozi’s fabulous article on IAHW in the Spring edition of Milestones:
