Audience: medical providers, family members/ caregivers, and other transition stakeholders

The Baylor conference is the largest gathering in the country of experts and stakeholders in Healthcare Transition for youth. In previous years, The Youth Health Transition Initiative has hosted a gathering to view the conference webcast at the American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison. The webcast was also broadcast at Children’s WI for a gathering of professionals and other stakeholders from the Milwaukee area.

During the pandemic the conference was virtual and viewed by individuals from their own computers. We will send out more information about the conference, including if we will be able to host a webcast this year.

More information will be available in August.
