Young people with rheumatic diseases have to take on new responsibilities as they enter the world of adult medical care. The Arthritis Foundation Transition Toolkit is designed to help youth and their families develop the skills they need to successfully make the leap to independence. Take a brief health care skills assessment and create a customized Transition Toolkit that meets YOUR needs. Or check out the resource library to learn more about: Communicating with your doctors, organizing your health care, going to college with arthritis, managing stress, eating well, and much more!
