Welcome, State Adolescent Health Coordinators!

Welcome, State Adolescent Health Coordinators!

here for you.

We’re a professional membership network led by state-level volunteers and fueled by national resource partners.

Through meetings, listserv conversations, and steady connection to technical assistance and resources, NNSAHC gives designated State Adolescent Health Coordinators (SAHCs) in State Title V/MCH programs (and their colleagues who share responsibility for adolescent health programming) a place to convene, share information, set priorities, and build community.

Whether you’re a full-time coordinator of your state’s broad efforts, a part-time manager of a specific adolescent health issue, or an adolescent health point person within a department, our member network and the staff at the State Adolescent Health Resource Center (SAHRC) can help you with anything from meeting your peers to managing your to-do list.

Use this site to:

  • Connect with your colleagues in 59 states and territories.
  • Build your program or state capacity.
  • Track emerging issues in the field.
