Build Your Bridge: Moving from Child to Adult Health Care
This is a free presentation and conversation to help guide families through the transition from child-centered to adult health care systems. Youth and families are often overwhelmed and under-prepared for the transition to adult health care. This presentation will introduce and discuss when to start thinking about health care transition as well as provide helpful tools and resources.
As a result of participating in this presentation we hope you will:
• Understand what youth health care transition is and why it is important.
• Identify activities in daily life where transition occurs.
• Apply tools and resources to take an active role in the health care transition process.
• Start a health transition action plan
