Survey Says: Teens Share How to Help Them Start Taking Control of Their Own Health with PATCH (Providers and Teens Connecting for Health)



This month, join three PATCH Teen Educators for an interactive game exploring ways you can help teens become responsible managers of their own health care!

Wisconsin PATCH (Providers and Teens Connecting for Health) is a collaboration of youth and adults that believe programs and policies for youth should include youth. They encourage young people to raise their voices to create positive change, and have programs and resources to EDUCATE, ENGAGE, and EMPOWER others to do the same.




  • Identify youth concerns related to transition from pediatric to adult based care
  • Explore ways to better prepare youth to start taking responsibility for their health care.




Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.
