What Is Got Transition?

Got Transition is a federally funded national resource center on health care transition. Its aim is to improve the transition from pediatric to adult health care through the use of evidence-driven strategies for health care professionals, youth, young adults, and their families.

Got Transition is a program of The National Alliance to Advance Adolescent Health and is funded through a cooperative agreement from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration.

Youth Information

As you get older, YOU will begin to make choices that will affect your health. Got Transition hopes to support you to make those choices carefully.  We want to provide you with information, tools, connections to other youth, and also people who work in the health care systems.

It is the hope of the team at Got Transition that when you feel supported, involved, and empowered in your own health care, you will be more likely to have a positive transition experience!
