Participants explored findings from recently released publications, Insight: Improving Health Outcomes for Vulnerable Youth and Young Adult Outcomes of Youth Exiting Dependent or Delinquent Care in Los Angeles County; learned about new and promising strategies being employed to address the critical health needs of these youth as they transition back into their communities; and discussed ways foundations and state level advocates are engaging in public private partnerships to provide necessary community-based and trauma informed treatment to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable youth.
