Teresa Nguyen, MPH is a Diversity Fellow at JFK Partners, while completing her final year of the Master of Public Health program at the University of Colorado Denver - Colorado School of Public Health. With personal experience as a person with a disability and growing up in a multicultural household, Teresa holds a unique perspective to what healthcare transition means for children and youth with special health care needs. She often presents to a wide variety of audiences, both locally and nationally, on the importance of a medical home model and how that compliments the process of transition for children and youth. She has been involved in projects with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Got Transition, American Academy of Pediatrics, and recently joined the team at The Center for Health Care Transition (Got Transition). As a part of a pilot transition clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado, Teresa worked with families and young adults to prepare them for the transition into the community, by discussing resource options with each family. Through the Diversity Fellowship, Teresa’s systems change project will examine how these resources have affected family self-efficacy to navigate through the different systems including: education, employment, guardianship, health care and independent living.
