Who We Are

Our team is a nationally recognized group of subject matter experts on health care transition, co-directed by Peggy McManus and Dr. Patience White. Our experience as the national resource center on health care transition, Got Transition®, has allowed us to partner with and support a diverse group of federal and state agencies, pediatric and adult health systems, Medicaid agencies and health plans, disability organizations, and research groups to improve health care transition for all youth and young adults, with and without chronic and disabling conditions. Our team developed the Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition™, which is the recommended approach called for by the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians, and American College of Physicians. We have also developed other provider-focused tools, youth and family materials, and policy and research reports on health care transition. Got Transition is a program of The National Alliance to Advance Adolescent Health, a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC.
