On June 12, 2021, the Transition to Adulthood Program at Children’s Mercy offered a free virtual conference to help teens, young adults and their parents/caregivers prepare for adulthood with different learning tracks for both.
Growing up and becoming young adults means taking steps to learn how to manage your life and your health. It takes preparation and self-advocacy. When you have a chronic condition, a disability or special medical needs, it becomes more complex.
Watch the 11 Transition to Adulthood Conference videos below to learn how other young adults and their parents navigated the journey.
