Each year, ETR convenes an invited summit – known as the Kirby Summit – to foster collective dialogue on research, programs, and policies to promote the sexual and reproductive health of young people.
The Kirby Summit is named after Dr. Doug Kirby, a senior research scientist at ETR, whose untimely death in 2012 created a noticeable tear in the fabric of the sex education field.
The Kirby Summit honors Dr. Kirby's insatiable curiosity and love of civil debate. Each convening focuses on how a particular area of emerging or ongoing research can be applied to programs, research and policies that promote the sexual health of young people.
