Because THEY are the experts.

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. We aim to improve the communication and overall relationship between adolescents and health care providers and have developed programming and resources for health care professionals, youth, health teachers, and parents and guardians to help reach this goal. 

Our work would not be possible without the support of champions, like YOU!
