In September 2015, the AYAH-NRC convened a summit with the Adolescent and Young Adult Health Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (“CoIIN”) with participants from five state teams: New Mexico, Texas, Iowa, Mississippi, and Vermont.
These presentations offer user-friendly overviews on key aspects of initiatives to improve well visits, such as quality improvement, public education, partnership development, special considerations for young adults and lessons from other states engaged in this work.
The Center is pleased to share presentations given by our staff and guest speakers at the first CoIIN Summit.
