Teen Advisory Board Application
Do you think that you are in control of your disease and are compliant with your treatment? Are you available for meetings and other activities to better Children's Mercy? Have you been diagnosed for at least a year and a half with your illness? Are you a good role model with good communication skills? Do you have good attendance and good grades at school? If you can answer yes to all of these questions, you seem like a good candidate to become a member of the Teen Advisory Board at Children's Mercy.
If you are a current or past patient of Children's Mercy and are between the ages of 13-18, TAB might be the perfect place for you! If you are interested in becoming a member of our Teen Advisory Board, you are the legal guardian of someone interested, or want to recommend a patient, we ask you to please read our Bylaws. They explain our expectations for members and the board as a whole, what to expect with regular meetings, parents' involvement, and what you need to know if making a recommendation.
If after reading the Bylaws, you feel this is a group you are interested in joining, you may print off our Application and Volunteer Consent forms and fill them out. Please make sure to fill out both forms. Next, you will want to send them to:
Amanda Woelk, Child Life
Children's Mercy Kansas City
2401 Gillham Road
Kansas City, MO 64108
