Advocacy for Young Adults with Chronic Diseases in College and Beyond

Recorded On: 08/19/2020

Advocacy for Young Adults with Chronic Diseases in College and Beyond


There are unique needs for students with chronic illnesses as they transition to adulthood. College is a critical period as there is more independence, often including greater individual accountability for health. Many young patients are lost as they transition abruptly, without preparing for independence with their health. Newfound freedom can be a catalyst of psychosocial stressors. This session will include methods to support young patients’ needs in their transitionary period beginning with college.

This webinar is partially sponsored by the American College Health Foundation Josh Kaplan Fund for Clinical Medicine.
