End your day with an inspiring group of young women, cast members from MTV’s Shuga, and health thoughts leaders. Enjoy an evening of music, drinks, desserts, engaging stories, and networking with those dedicated to health care for all!

We’ll pause the music for a dynamic dialogue focused on re-imagining primary health care so that it truly meets the needs of young people. You’ll hear stories of young women harnessing their own agency, working within community power structures, and making a profound difference in their own lives and the lives of others!

Then, we’ll turn the music back up and celebrate the power of dreams!
