A recap of everything that happened at this year's #YTHLive, which was filled with celebrities like Morgan Saylor, our Youth Advisory Board, TECHCHECK, our Youth Meetup, virtual reality, and more!
- YTH Live kicked off with a pre-conference workshop, Using Youth-Centered Health Design, where participants unleashed their creativity and imagination and applied design-thinking to create a campaign or product related to sleep hygiene. The youth and adult professionals who attended the three hour, hands-on workshop created a prototype of their sleep solution with the guidance of our expert facilitators Helene Cahen, an innovation consultant with 2 decades of experience, and Dr. Rebecca Hope, an adolescent physician and founder of YBank.

Youth Leadership in Action
- YTH Live is centered around youth and youth leaders, and they participate at every level of the conference as participants, presenters in breakout sessions and plenaries, through moderating, hosting the Youth Meetup, and facilitating social media. Conference attendees picked up on this theme of youth leadership at YTH Live and took to social media to share their enthusiasm.
