Substance Use in Transition, Tim Cordes, MD (9:10-9:40 a.m.)
The transition to adulthood is a time of normative experimenting and interacting with social pressures. What happens when young adults with still maturing brains experiment with rebranded nicotine delivery systems, try the most potent and available marijuana ever and encounter socially sanctioned use of alcohol? More importantly, how can we help them? This session will explore trends in substance use among adolescents, common consequences of use, strategies to engage and motivate patients and pharmacologic tools to assist them in making changes.

This presentation will provide updates on some of the key areas in which our understanding of bullying and youth has changed. This includes the uniform definition of bullying, overlap between bullying and cyberbullying and the impact of bullying on youth health outcomes. Participants will also learn the current national recommendations regarding bullying from the 2015 National Academies report. The session will conclude with considering the critical role of physicians in prevention and intervention with bullying in our communities.
The Case for Emotional Trauma as a Major Determinant of Youth Development, Tim Grove, MSSW (11:10-11:40 a.m.)
The impact of trauma on youth development has profound implications for all helpers; implications we are just starting to collectively appreciate and address.

During this session, the presenter will discuss the current epidemiologic trends of STIs among adolescents and young adults and emerging treatment recommendations and challenges such as those for the management of drug-resistant gonorrhea. The coordination of health care providers to prescribe HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), an effective method for reducing HIV transmission, will also be presented.
Pregnancy Prevention in Adolescents, Paula Cody, MD, MPH (1:40-2:10 p.m.)

Emerging Trends and Best Practice in Women's Health on College Campuses, Mary Landry, MD, FACOG (3:05-3:35 p.m.)
This session will describe collaborative best practice in college health in the areas of LARC same day access, telehealth contraception and sexual assault. The presenter will include trends and practical implementation strategies that empower young adults with health information and access options to make shared health decisions for preventative and problem-focused care. Expansion of similar collaborative care to health systems beyond college health has merit to improve individual health access and population health outcomes.
