The Georgia Academy partners with the Department of Public Health’s Maternal and Child Division to educate family physicians and their clinical teams on an array of issues. One key component is education related to transitioning the pediatric and adolescent patient population to the appropriate physician, if the patient is no longer able to be treated by the family physician (moved / college-bound, etc.).
Got Transition hosted a recent online seminar to discuss ways to incorporate health care transition into preventive care for adolescents. Learn how to align the transition and preventive care national performance measures and hear directly from the Title V team from Hawaii about their own experience, including examples of trainings and tools.

Got Transition® is the federally funded national resource center on health care transition (HCT). Its aim is to improve the transition from pediatric to adult health care through the use of evidence-driven strategies for clinicians and other health care professionals; public health programs; payers and plans; youth and young adults; and parents and caregivers.
Got Transition is a program of The National Alliance to Advance Adolescent Health and is funded through a cooperative agreement from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration.
Working with a broad range of partners, our goals are to:
- Establish a new network with the medical home and financing centers to coordinate efforts to achieve quality care, decrease costs, and improve experience of care.
- Engage youth/young adults/families on the importance of a planned transition from pediatric to adult care.
- Strengthen HCT evidence and policy analysis.
- Increase practice/system adoption of evidence-informed practices.
- Enhance engagement of key stakeholder organizations in HCT clinical, educational, and policy improvements.
- Update and expand Got Transition’s website capability and communication strategies.
