The Providers and Teens Communicating for Health (PATCH) Program is an innovative, youth-driven program working to ensure all adolescents are able to receive high-quality, youth-friendly health care services in their community.
"PATCH has given me SO much confidence in public speaking and self advocacy, a new and unique community of peers, opportunities in public health, insight, knowledge, compassion... and so many other things I’ll never be able to put into words!" ~ Lily, 17
"Managing our own health care ~ like driving a car ~ is an important part of becoming an adult. At the end of the day, it’s just making sure we’re physically and mentally well so that we can do so many amazing things in life!" ~ Jack, 16
