Teen Advisory Board
TAB was started in 1999 with the goal of improving Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics for all patients – especially those who are older. As senior members graduate, the board looks for individuals interested in becoming a TAB member. We meet one Monday a month from 6:00-7:30 pm and on special occasions. During the meetings we plan fundraisers, work on hospital projects, brainstorm, and enjoy each other’s company. In addition, we also serve as outreach mentors who offer support and knowledge about our medical experiences, and friendship to those patients who are interested.
