PATCH for HOPE Buffalo

PATCH stands for "Providers and Teens Communicating for Health." We believe that for YOU (and other teens) to be your healthiest, you should be able to have open and honest conversations with a healthcare provider.

For many this often isn't the case and that's why PATCH for HOPE Buffalo exists! We want to make sure that ALL youth can get the health care they need and deserve.

In this program we rely on you to be the expert and share what you know about being a teen, like:

  • What are your/your peers' concerns about health care?
  • What are things that make you like or dislike a health care provider?
  • How much do you or your friends know about your health care rights as a teen?
  • ...and so much more!
