Call for Papers: Transitioning Adolescents and Young Adults to Adult Health Care

Call for papers focusing on the transition of adolescents and young adults—particularly those with chronic illnesses—from pediatric to adult systems of care to publish as part of a yearlong "rolling theme" issue. An ongoing call, articles on the topic will publish throughout the next year.
