Program Description

The goal of the ATM PAB is to build a diverse, sustainable patient-led advisory board supported by ATM faculty, fellows, trainees and staff.  Board members will give feedback on how to foster a youth-friendly environment in the Teen Health Center, assess methods for youth to successfully make the transition from adolescent to adult medical care, review resources, health guides and other educational materials, and engage in the development of clinical research in the Teen Health Center.

Board members will create connections with like-minded teens, form positive mentoring relationships with adults, earn community service hours and gain insight into future careers in healthcare and biomedical research.
