Bridging the Gap: From Child to Adult Health Systems
Join us for a free presentation and conversation to help guide families through the transition from child
centered to adult health 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 transition as well as provide helpful tools and resources.
DATES & TIMES:
Saturday, January 21, 2023, 8:30-9:30 AM

As a result of participating in this presentation we hope you will:
• Understand what youth health care transition is and why it is important.
