The Health Advocacy Summit is working to develop individual programs that focus on specific issues and conditions affecting young adults within the broader chronic illness community.

Our first initiative is the Crohn’s and Colitis Young Adult Network (CCYAN), an international online fellowship that produces videos, articles, and stories by young adults with inflammatory bowel disease.


We are currently in the process of creating programs that focus on the following:

  • Young adults with cystic fibrosis

  • Local and online support networks and outreach

  • Legislative advocacy measures that effect young adult patients most

  • Support resources for siblings and family members of chronic illness patients

If you are interested in becoming involved or collaborating on future initiatives, please send us a message here.
