Presented by Bonnie Prestridge,
Life Coach for Young People with Health Conditions
I help teens and young adults live their best lives with an illness, injury, or other health condition. This includes navigating undergraduate and graduate level education.
I won't sugarcoat it, completing a degree when you have a serious health condition is HARD. It may even feel impossible.
I can't remove all your barriers, but I CAN equip you with skills, strategies, and resources to reduce their impact so that you can be successful and build a fulfilling life.

What to expect...
Ever been to a webinar where the presenter just drones on and on as your mind slowly melts?
Or the concepts maybe work for other people but don't account for your unique situation?
Or they promise to answer your questions, but only leave 3 hurried minutes at the end?
Not. My. Style.
Expect a lively webinar on concrete knowledge that you can immediately apply to your unique situation.
I’ll engage with your questions throughout the presentation, in addition to dedicated Q&A time at the end.
1 hour and 30 minutes
Automatic closed captions on during the presentation.
A recording and accurate transcript emailed afterwards to anyone who registers.
Visual descriptions throughout for anyone who is blind/low vision, tuning in from a phone, or just needs a break from screen time.
