Becoming an adult can be exciting. Suddenly young people have more rights and freedom than when they were children. But they also have more responsibilities and more of their own decisions to make - where they want to live, what kind of job they want to have, whether or not they want to go to college, etc. In order to achieve any of their dreams, it is important that young adults take care of their physical and mental health. Attend this webinar to learn about Montana's new "Planning Your Transition from Pediatric to Adult Health Care" workbook and how it can help young Montanans with disabilities and/or special health care needs learn to manage their health care.
