Our Mission: The Chesapeake Regional Chapter of the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine serves the Washington, DC, Maryland, and northern Virginia area. Our members come from a variety of medical and non-medical disciplines including physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, health educators, and other health professionals. We are committed to improving the physical and psychological health and well-being of all adolescents through advocacy, clinical care, health promotion, health service delivery, professional development, and research.

Our Objectives:

  • Promote positive youth development, illness prevention, achievement of individual potential and a sense of physical, mental and social well-being.
  • Pursue optimal adolescent health and developmentally-appropriate health care, through scientific research that provides evidence based effective health promotion, prevention and treatment of illness and injury.
  • Promote respect for individual dignity, equity, and justice, and recognition that age-appropriate, developmentally-sensitive health care is a right and not a privilege.
  • Advance adolescent health by increasing awareness of the health needs of adolescents and young adults through effective advocacy, communication, and dissemination of knowledge.
  • Recognize that advancing adolescent health depends upon effective partnerships among adolescents, families, health professionals, public and private sectors, communities, schools, and other social institutions.
