|Youth & Healthcare
|The New Hampshire YEAH Council comes together monthly to discuss issues involved in what it means to be a young adult with
a chronic health condition, and how best to make the transition to the adult health care system. They work to educate other
youth on how to handle their transition to adulthood, as well as educating the medical professionals about what they can do to
facilitate the transition. For more information visit their website
"YEAH Website" or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Our purpose is to help the transition from childhood to adulthood, dependence to independence and pediatric
medical care to adult medical care go more smoothly. We are here to help teens and young adults:
Get the information they need to live independently...
Live a successful life....
Make decisions about healthcare....
Inform your doctors and physicians about your healthcare and general needs....
Make information easily accessible to teens who may lack parental guidance.
The council is made up of: Adam B., Nicole T., Mary D., Zach H., Charles M., Jonathan H., Kalie W.,
James B., Matthew B., Cordelia W.,
Karin Harvey Ohlson is the facilitator.
