May 10: dinner forum on adolescent health research

The Minnesota Children's Health Research Collaborative will host a dinner forum on May 10 on the topic of adolescent health and sexuality. This is the second in a series of Research in Child Health Dinner Forum meetings, which represent a unique collaboration between Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) at the University of Minnesota.

Purpose

This partnership, known as the Minnesota Children's Health Research Collaborative, provides a unique opportunity for us to address significant problems in children's health.
