Agenda

Preliminary Draft Agenda

The 32nd Annual Research & Policy Conference on Child, Adolescent,
and Young Adult Behavioral Health

Note: It’s a bit early and we are mid-way on in working with presenters to sharpen up their descriptions of the amazing presentations being offered for the Tampa Conference, but we just couldn’t wait to give you a sneak peek at how incredible the conference is shaping up to be. So excuse the dangling participles, rest assured our army of editors are sharpening their pencils to make everything just right, and that our graphic designers are chompin’ at the bit to make everything pretty. But for now, go ahead and feast your eyes on the stripped down version showing the confirmed sessions this year. You are gonna love it.
