Drawing a Picture: Adolescent-Centered Medical Homes

Youth from UMHS Adolescent Health Initiative’s Teen Advisory Council, TAC TAC, explore many of the ways that primary care and other health centers can make sure that their space is youth-friendly. Through whiteboard illustration by Karen, a high school student, TAC TAC members Clara, Brandon, Felipe, and Juli explain what makes them feel welcome when they go to the doctor’s office, including physical space, policies and procedures. This video allows healthcare professionals to hear directly from youth about some of their priorities for an adolescent-centered medical home.
