The Arizona Family Health Partnership (AFHP) is excited to continue supporting the incredible achievements of Adolescent Champions in Arizona. Ten clinics have earned certification as an adolescent-centered environment, ten more clinics are participating in our current cohort, and we are ready to onboard another 10 clinics for our fourth cohort!

The Adolescent Champion Model is centered on the Adolescent Champion team as an agent of change within the clinic to transform it into an adolescent-centered medical home.

The time commitment is fairly minimal over the course of the 18-month program, and it offers an exceptional leadership opportunity for the Champions within the clinic. The program also provides opportunity for CME, MOC Part IV, QI project credit, and certification as an adolescent-centered environment.

Adolescent Champion health centers have shown significant improvement in adolescent patient satisfaction, staff perception of adolescent-centered care within their clinic, and provider comfort and confidence in caring for adolescents.
