Adolescent Transition Conference
The 2013 Adolescent Transition Conference will be held on November 9, 2013. Email email@example.com for more information.
"I have been a patient at Children's for years. I just turned 17, and my doctor told me I have to transition to an adult hospital in a few years. What hospital will I go to? Will my new doctors know what I need? What if I get sick at college? Who will remind me to take my medicine? My doctor told me to attend the adolescent transition conference. I can bring my parents, ask questions and learn how to take care of myself."
This annual conference, for cardiac and transplant patients ages 13 to 20, is a day of education and fun. The conference provides information about the transition from pediatric to adult healthcare. Topics may include:
Understanding and Maintaining Healthcare Coverage into Adulthood
How Drugs and Alcohol Affect Your Disease or Transplant
How Disability Services can Held College and Technical School students
How to Transition Healthcare Responsibilities From Parent to Teen
Parent and Teen Breakout Sessions
Parents are welcome to attend. Held at a local Dave & Buster's, this conference is free and includes lunch and games. Contact Kati Keyes at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
