  • Providing content expertise to community programs that serve teens (including the public library, YMCA, Urban League)
  • Preparing guidelines for schools on health topics (such as adolescent sleep, transgender care)
  • Supporting youth involved in the Youth Research Advisory Board or the CHANGE transition services program (Children's Hospital Advisory Network for Guidance and Empowerment)
