The Council for Youth with Chronic Conditions (CYCC) dates back to 1993, when it was known as the Council for Children and Adolescents with Chronic Health Conditions (CCACHC). Then, Governor Stephen Merrill established this advisory Council by Executive Order to focus on issues that impact the lives of chronically ill children and their families. The signing of HB472 by Governor Jeanne Shaheen in July 1997, established officially the Council within the state statues. Today, there are 64,000 youth in New Hampshire that are affected by chronic health conditions that the council keeps in mind while educating and informing the public of their needs.
