2nd Annual Transition Fair on May 30 in Portland

Are you 12-26 years old and experiencing disability? The Institute on Development and Disability (IDD) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is hosting its annual Transition Fair, entitled Passport to a Healthy Future. This free event emphasizes a holistic approach to adolescent transition for young people who experience disability. The event will feature community transition resources as well as a series of presentations for individuals, families, and providers.

This event will provide:

  • Education on important transition topics related to transitioning into adulthood
  • Access to community resources
  • Connections with service providers and community programs for transitioning youth
  • Information on health and wellness resources for youth and families

The fair will take place on Saturday, May 30, from 9am to 2pm at the Collaborative Life Sciences Building (South Waterfront) in Portland, Oregon (2730 SW Moody Ave) in rooms 3A001 and 3A002.

Free accessible parking will be available. For those who pre-register (link below), they will receive a free lunch provided by a local business, and a copy of the Transition Resource Guide. There will be an American Sign Language interpreter available upon request, which can be made either over the phone when you register or on the online registration form when it asks for special accommodations. Also, attendees who choose to participate in the raffle will have the opportunity to win some really great prizes.
