MOASH was conceived in the spring of 2008 by statewide leaders, including professionals from the Michigan Department of Community Health, Michigan Department of Education and other local and statewide organizations that serve adolescent sexual health.

One of our first tasks was to interview other successful statewide organizations about challenges and opportunities.  We built a strong board to help us grow, and we are indebted to the many advisors, volunteers, and donors who have given us sturdy roots.
