This month we bring you a collection of articles about the difficult transition many young adults with special health care needs (YASHCN) face as they graduate from pediatrics to adult medicine.  This transition has implications not only for medical care but for the complementary services related to education, job placement, and independent living.  In Volume 1, we present the rationale for providing an excellent medical transition.  Volume II, in contract, will focus on "resources" YASHCN and their families should know about regarding legal rights, insurance, reproductive health and the needs of special populations--namely cancer survivors.  Many thanks to Michael Landry, MD, MSc, and David DeLaet, MD, MPH for organizinig this important series.  - See more at: /publications/sgim-forum/current-issue#sthash.huKFNgfV.dpuf
