Webinar – Education for Empowerment: School and Teens in Healthcare Transition

  • The Center at Lexington 465 North Perry Street Johnstown, NY, 12095 United States (map)

Please join Lin Perry, a project director at Parent to Parent of NYS’s Family Healthcare Information Center, as she presents a webinar on “Education for Empowerment: School and Teens in Healthcare Transitions.” As our youth with ID/DD or special healthcare needs transition from pediatric to adult health care systems, self-advocates and parents alike need to understand the importance of transitioning their healthcare effectively. While many people engage in transition planning for their education to adult systems, sadly healthcare isn’t often included in those plans. Consider the importance of transitioning healthcare and some effective means to begin a plan to transition for yourself or your child.
