Michigan Medicine

Teens are often in a challenging spot when it comes to healthcare, as they’re transitioning from a period of time when their parents handled everything to a time when they have their own ideas of what they want from a provider. UMHS Adolescent Health Initiative’s youth advisory council created this video to help teens and young adults learn ways to advocate for themselves so they get the quality healthcare that they deserve. The Adolescent Health Initiative advances innovative adolescent-centered healthcare through practice improvement, education, research, and youth and community engagement. AHI partners with health systems, health centers, and healthcare professionals across the country to optimize adolescent and young adult health and well-being.
