I started as CEO of the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy in October 2016 and I can’t believe how fast the time has flown by! It’s beginning to get “Famously Hot” outside and I just attended my first Summer Institute as the leader of our amazing organization. I was excited to meet some new and familiar faces; while following up with others and connecting with them in this capacity.
We host the Summer Institute conference each year as an opportunity to learn from, engage with and be inspired by one another. As a partner and participant, I have experienced the conference, but this year I was representing this great organization and I couldn’t be happier.
As I look forward to many more conferences to come, I am focused on making sure we continue to build upon this important platform to engage partners and advocates in the field.
Whether you’re a teacher, a social worker, a youth leader, a healthcare provider, a faith leader, or a parent—we all have a role to play in teen pregnancy prevention. Together, we can make a difference. I look forward to supporting you all year long and to seeing you next year. Check out Summer Institute 2018 save the date information at TeenPregnancySC.org/SI.
