Transition to Adult Health Care Guide (pdf)


Transition Planning Workbook

The publication, Transition Planning Workbook Hilopa‘a Style 1.1, is meant to be a guide to help "talk story" and talk through the planning process of transitioning our youth to adult health.

Transition Planning Workbook (pdf)

Prepared in conjunction with Family Voices of Hawai‘i, the guide begins as follows:

“As our mentor Josie Woll has always taught us, life is a journey, not an event. Transitioning to adulthood does not happen overnight. Successful transition requires time, patience, and a sense of humor.”
