This Is Health Care Transition

Growing up and becoming an adult is difficult for all youth, but can be especially challenging for young people with special health care needs. This four-part video series was developed to help youth and young adults with chronic health conditions and their families be better prepared for adulthood, especially the move from pediatric to adult-oriented health care. This video was developed through a contract from Children's Medical Services to the University of Florida.  This is part 1 of  a four part series. Visit the You Tube link for the full series.
