The 48th Annual AASECT Conference is June 8-12, 2016 in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our 2016 conference theme is Putting the Pieces Together: Inclusivity in Practice, and as part of this, the conference planning team has been focused on cultivating a program that explores the various pieces in the mosaic of human sexuality, with an eye towards expanding our understanding of the utmost importance and significance of practicing inclusivity and impact-awareness in the field of sexuality.
