About the Symposium
The Texas Campaign’s Annual Symposium brings together youth-serving professionals and provides them with training and technical support, gives them access to a network of experts with the latest information and best practices around this issue, and helps them learn effective ways to create change. The 2020 event features a partnership between the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and Healthy Futures of Texas, a San Antonio based non-profit organization also working to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy while supporting the development of strong families.
The event objectives are to:
Provide the latest information on teen pregnancy and adolescent development that is appropriate for the diverse knowledge base and skills of participants;
Increase participant knowledge regarding evidence-informed interventions focused on culturally competent care for medically underserved adolescents living in Texas;
Share best practices for promoting adolescent and child health, youth-friendly services and trauma-informed care and to explore innovative programs of each;
Identify and invest in youth and young adult voices to draw in those who are directly affected by adolescent health advocacy;
Raise awareness of continuing disparities in reproductive health care access and outcomes that persist in many communities within Texas.

Due to recent guidance from local, state, and federal government entities, Texas Campaign leadership has decided to cancel the 2020 Symposium, scheduled for April 6-8, in San Antonio, Texas. Though we had originally hoped to reschedule the event, the quickly evolving landscape with COVID-19 has prevented us from doing so. We appreciate your patience as we work to process registration refunds. Rooms booked at the event hotel will be cancelled automatically.
We are dedicated to providing learning opportunities to professionals from across Texas and are drafting a plan to bring you this year's programming in a webinar format. More details will be announced soon!
