@sophiayenmd Wow I am not a mom but I do know this is so much needed. Being a teenage girl is probably one of the worst times ever :DI am curious what specifically would you be uncovering during this event? It is such a big topic that can be tackled from many angles, or are you going to address some questions that were previously submitted?
