Girls Elevated: Pathway to Health

Event Description

Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology are pleased to host Girls Elevated, an interactive day-long session for adolescent girls and their parents. Building on feedback from our inaugural, sold-out event, we’re hosting an informative, fun-filled day – and creating stronger, more confident young women. Our team of experts will help arm teen and preteen girls with the knowledge they need to navigate the changes and challenges that lie ahead. Sessions will cover important topics such as healthy relationships, body image and sexual pressures. Adults will receive expert advice on bonding with their teen, setting boundaries and talking about difficult subjects.
