The Transition of Care Committee brings together youth, parents/caregivers, health care providers and community partners. Our goal is to improve the transition from pediatric to adult medical care. (Transition happens as a youth prepares to move from pediatric care to health care for adults). The committee’s work may include shaping policy and practice, creating educational materials, program development, research and evaluation, and strategic planning.
Our committee includes:

You’ll also need to complete the requirements to become an IWK Volunteer
