Abstract

With this paper, five key domains of advocacy, clinical care and health promotion, education and health services delivery, workforce and professional development, and research are 806 Position paper / Journal of Adolescent Health 52 (2013) 804e807 identified. All five require attention in order to reach the overarching goal of health equity for adolescents and young adults. SAHM believes that achieving health equity is related to its organizational mission and vision and is a key factor in driving excellence in adolescent health and medicine. SAHM will continue to expand its capacity, being introspective as an organization as well as make recommendations to others, in an effort to be collaborative and inclusive of professionals, programs, and systems that represent and serve the diverse populations for whom the Society advocates.
