YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL FOR TENNESSEE DISABILITY COALITION
The purpose of the Youth Advisory Council is to bring together youth or young adults (14-24) to advise and collaborate with TN Department of Health on activities, programs, policies and resources affecting the health, wellness, and transition of youth in our state.
The Tennessee Department of Health is inviting the YAC to share thoughts and ideas on health-related issues and needs of youth with special healthcare needs as a part of the state needs assessment. This will help them shape the work they do for the next 5 years, so this is a huge deal! The event will be February 21, 2020 from 6:00pm-8:00 p.m. in the conference room at the Tennessee Disability Coalition, which is located at 955 Woodland St. If you can't join us in person, we've got you covered with zoom.
