In May 2017, the AYAH-NRC convened a summit with the Adolescent and Young Adult Health Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (“CoIIN”) with participants from seven state teams: Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Washington and Wyoming.
These presentations offer user-friendly overviews on key aspects of initiatives to improve well visits, such as quality improvement, partnership development, special considerations for young adults and lessons from other states engaged in this work.
