Happy New Year

Dana Cropper

Dear CAPTC Community, 

As we start the new year, I celebrate each of your contributions to the health of our society. Whether you are a care provider who's benefited from our trainings, a partner we have worked with to disseminate valuable information, an organization we've supported through capacity building or clinical information, or new to our work, know that we value you and think of you as we promote sexual health and heath equity. 

Please join us in celebrating our impact in 2022 by reviewing our brief impact report here.

In 2023, we are looking forward to continuing to share valuable information while sustaining and building partnerships. As always, our aim is to meet your training and capacity-building needs. Please reach out and share what you need!
