Improving the quality of programs that impact teen patients


Call 423-778-5919 for more information

The Teen Advisory Council at Erlanger (TACE) serves as a forum to explore areas of interest to our teen patients and their siblings. Open to adolescents and young adults who receive their care at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, the committee makes recommendations and suggestions to improve the quality and quantity of programs that affect our teen patients. Members commit to attending a monthly meeting, and to sharing ideas with hospital administration, clinicians and employees. TACE plays an important role in helping our hospital grow and improve, and it helps our teen members gain leadership experience, as well as public speaking and presentation opportunities.
