Designed in partnership with current and former patients in your age group, the Teen and Young Adult Program (TYA@MSK) is available to patients ages 16 to 30. Regardless of your diagnosis, treatment plan, or location, TYA@MSK will help you to better navigate MSK, connect with peers, and find helpful resources.
3 Main Components
The Lounge App is a social media platform that allows you to connect with patients around your age, find or suggest events inside or outside MSK, share experiences, ask questions, and get answers from experts - both other patients and healthcare providers. Download the Lounge App from the iOS App Store or Google Play and request a unique, secure passcode from firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include your full name, date of birth, and phone number in the email!
The Lounge, located on the 14th floor of the Bobst Building (the 15th floor of Memorial Hospital), is open to you whether you’ve been admitted to the hospital or being treated in clinic. The lounge is a comfortable space with the most current gaming systems, TV streaming services, crafts, games, and a snack bar. You and your guests can make the space your own by using any of the resources available or participating in planned daily programs.
Peer-2-Peer is a program that pairs you with another young adult who has completed treatment, but was once where you are now.
