Supporting Youth to Adult Health Care Transition

Learning Community

The Youth Health Transition Learning Community provides networking opportunities for health professionals who wish to move transition forward in their own organizations. This statewide group comes together virtually to share ideas and best practices around youth health transition. This webinar is for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, community supports, and anyone interested in supporting youth as they transition from adolescent to adult health care.

The Youth Health Transition Initiative, based at the Waisman Center in Madison, facilitates Learning Community activities.
