2018 Planning Committee

We would not be able to put on this event year after year if it wasn’t for the tremendous efforts of the Southern California Sexual Health Collaborative and the summit planning committee. Members of the committee are from agencies around Southern California, and they volunteer their time above and beyond their day jobs.
