Event Details

Though children and adolescents are at the center of pediatrics as the recipients of care, their voices are often missing from conversations about how to transform the field to better meet their needs and support their lifelong health. Inviting youth to the table during these efforts — and creating equitable partnerships with them — offers a unique perspective that can help accelerate opportunities to improve pediatric care delivery.

This webinar will spotlight promising strategies for inviting youth perspectives to inform pediatric practice transformation efforts. Presenters, including a nationally recognized youth leader, a pediatrician, and a youth advisor, will share their experiences empowering youth to contribute to health care transformation, with a focus on peer-to-peer supports, access to needed resources, and involving youth in advocacy. This webinar is a product of Accelerating Child Health Transformation, a national initiative led by the Center for Health Care Strategies with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that seeks to accelerate the adoption of key strategies necessary to advance anti-racist and family-centered pediatric practice.
