YHII

In its earlier years, the YHII focused on increasing the skills and confidence of providers (pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, office staff) in providing comprehensive preventive health visits, including screening for risks and assessing strengths.

Vermont RAYS

Through the newly established Vermont RAYS, the project will continue to foster collaborations with adolescents and young adults in informing project work, including developing resources and educational materials, advising primary care medical homes, and strategizing initiatives to increase awareness of adolescents and young adults.

Additionally, the YHII team supports improvement efforts around: a) human papilloma virus vaccine; b) access to long active reversible contraception (LARC); c) VDH’s injury prevention priorities; d) strengthening collaboration among schools and medical homes.
