Spanish Translation Of Teenagers, Health Care And The Law Now Available!

We are pleased to announce the Spanish-language publication of the revised and updated edition of our legal guide, Teenagers, Health Care & the Law!

The new Los Cuidados de Salud de los Adolescentes y la Ley, like the first edition, clarifies minors’ rights under New York and federal law to make their own medical decisions. The changes reflect years of feedback from workshops, intake calls and evaluations through our ongoing collaboration with young people, providers and advocates. The second edition includes new sections on:


  • schools and confidentiality;
  • sexual assault care;
  • emergency contraception;
  • child abuse reporting; and
  • minors in foster care.

We anticipate that Los Cuidados de Salud de los Adolescentes y la Ley will continue to be a valuable tool to individuals and organizations throughout the state who work with Spanish-speaking populations.
