Learning Community #2: Marketing the Adolescent and Young Adult Well Visit


The Adolescent and Young Adult Health National Resource Center (AYAH-NRC) is pleased to announce the second Learning Community series:

Marketing the Adolescent and Young Adult Well Visit

Co-creation > Youth Engagement?


Tuesday, May 16th
2pm-3:30pm ET
1pm-2:30pm CT
12pm-1:30pm MT
11am-12:30pm PT
10am – 11:30am Alaska
8am – 9:30am Hawaii

This virtual learning series will provide thought-provoking ideas and concepts from commercial marketers to inform our approaches to engaging young people in health.

Shocker: commercial marketing is all on-board with youth engagement. They call it “co-creation” and realize that if young people aren’t actually involved in the process, no sale. A discussion about flipping our approach to youth engagement and messages.

Participants of the entire series will:

  • Use a broad definition of marketing to inform their work
  • Generalize about generational differences
  • Apply consumer insights about AYA to public health challenges
  • Innovate thinking about and approaches to communicating to young people
