Yale Rheumatology Transition Program is a joint program between Yale Pediatric and Adult Rheumatology that is designed to facilitate the transition from pediatric to adult care for young adults with chronic rheumatic conditions. Clinicians in the Transition Program work with young adults to understand their goals and help them become knowledgeable and independent in their health care decision making. Dr. Lenore Buckley, an adult and pediatric rheumatologist, directs the program and Jacinta Renaldi, RNP leads the Wellness Program and organizes groups meetings for young adults. The program is at the YNHH Interventional Immunology Center in North Haven and referrals to the program can be made through EPIC or by faxing patient information and the new patient referral to 203-785-7053.
