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!

Make a donation, sign up for our seasonal newsletter Peek@PATCH, and follow us on social media @thepatchprogram to stay updated on our programs, events, and opportunities.

PATCH staff is excited to be attending the break out session with LiFT for more info on parent-teen relationship building!
