The 2020 Biennial Meeting program was themed "From Genome to Globe", and program co-chairs, Rachel Gordon, the University of Illinois at Chicagoand Paige Harden, University of Texas at Austin, built on concepts that dug into key questions of our time, including youth's engagement in voting and in political movements and in how adolescents navigate in a global society.
