Transition to adulthood is a time of change and one that takes preparation. For teens and young adults with disabilities and special health care needs there are many complex issues to learn about. Through this time of transition, it is important to stay as healthy as possible, since good health promotes success in the adult roles of employment, lifelong learning, and independent community living.

The transition from pediatric health care to adult-oriented health care can be very complicated for people with disabilities and chronic health conditions. The Jacksonville Health and Transition Services (JaxHATS) clinic was created to help make this transition easier. JaxHATS serves teens and young adults, ages 16-26, with chronic medical or developmental problems. Services are open to residents of Duval, Nassau, Baker, Clay, and St. Johns counties in Florida. For immediate assistance, please call us at (904) 244-9233.
