Seven young adults from the 22q Clinic at the Hospital of Sick Children (HCS) "graduated" from pediatric care on Tuesday, October 14th and entered the adult care system.
The 22q11.2DS Transition Program started at HCS in the morning. The graduating young adults and their parents enjoyed several interactive activities throughout the morning. They also had a chance to touch base with their HCS physicians. There was a pizza lunch for all, and the young adults received graduation certificates.
After lunch, everyone walked over to Toronto General Hospital to meet the staff and view the facility at The Dalglish Family Hearts and Minds Clinic. Some also took the opportunity to book appointments. We enjoyed meeting these young adults, and we look forward to working with them and their families in the future to optimize their health and well-being.
