ON TRAC and Check Your Head
Check Your Head is a Vancouver based organization that provides workshops to educate and activate young people on various social issues. They recently partnered with BC Children’s Hospital to create and facilitate workshops for youth living with Type 1 Diabetes and other chronic illnesses as part of BC Children’s ON TRAC program. ON TRAC Transition workshops prepare teenagers living with Type 1 Diabetes and other chronic illnesses for their upcoming transition from paediatric to adult healthcare.
In September 2014, Young and T1 partnered with Check Your Head in order to become apart of the ON TRAC program and learn how to facilitate Transition workshops in the future. After many “Train-The-Trainer” workshops and “Transition Simulation” workshops, YT1 members have become fully equipped to provide youth who are graduating from BC Children’s Hospital and other paediatric care the necessary skills and resources required to navigate through the adult health care system.
