This September we are asking people to #PitchinforPATCH during our annual fundraiser! Any amount goes a long way to help make PATCH a success!
For adolescents to be their healthiest, they must be able to engage in open, honest, and medically accurate discussions with their health care providers. But, in reality, providers and teens don’t always speak the same language. PATCH is an innovative, teen-delivered educational program targeting barriers that interfere with the ability of health care providers and teens to communicate effectively with one another about sensitive health topics—such as sexual health, mental health, alcohol and drug abuse, or safety—thereby improving the quality of care received.
