The EMBODI (Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence) Conference was held on April 26, 2014 at Triton College. The conference theme was "Boys to Men, Focusing on the Future." There were 75 young men in attendance as well as 30 adult attendees who served as presenters and event leaders. Conference workshops addressed individual values and group norms that support health enhancing behaviors and and provide support for personal and social pressures that lead to risky behaviors, i.e., media influence, peer pressure and social barriers. A 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament was held immediately following the workshops.
