    May 20, 2021, 7:00 pm ET

    Turning 18 is a big deal for both teens and their parents. It’s that milestone birthday where a teen becomes a legal adult and in charge of many parts of their life, including their medical care. But life out in the adult healthcare world is really different than in the pediatric world. Join Dr. Brandon Rocque and Amanda Garzon to see where your family stands on the checklist to your teen taking over their medical care so teens can move on and out (of the house) with confidence. Teens, bring your parent(s) and vice versa! This is meant to be an interactive discussion.
