Comment: The IOM and the NRC will host a two-day public workshop that highlights research on the health, safety and well-being of young adults. The workshop will feature invited presentations and discussions that address the following questions:

What are the developmental characteristics and attributes of this age group and its placement in the life course?

How well are emerging and young adults functioning across relevant sectors, including for example, health and mental health, education, labor, justice, military, and foster care?

How do the various sectors that intersect with emerging and young adults influence their health and well-being?

This workshop will provide the foundation to a possible larger effort to analyze and synthesize knowledge about the health, safety, and well-being of young adults – approximately 16-26 years old – to guide research, practice, and policy.

The workshop will begin at 8:30 am on Tuesday, May 7th, and Wednesday, May 8th. This workshop is open to the public and will also be webcast. Registration is available to attend in person as well as the via webcast.
