Significance: During Indiana's needs assessment process, the community identified quality of healthcare and trusted healthcare as a priority. While adolescents are generally a healthy population, preventive visits are important to identify and educate about at-risk health conditions or behaviors. Preventive visits in adolescence are also beneficial for the long-term health benefits they can provide to individuals and ultimately, communities. By recruiting Indiana clinics to implement the University of Michigan's Adolescent Champion Model to further increase the quality of care provided to youth, we hope to impact the overall percentage of youth receiving a wellness visit in the past year. The adolescent Champion model is an 18-month process designed to drive health centers to become adolescent-centered. It is a multi-faceted intervention to address a health center's environment, policies, and practices to ensure that all aspects of a visit to the health center are youth-centered.
