Student Health Advisory Board
TWC's Student Health Advisory Board is a new program for Alexandria teens interested in the health issues affecting their communities. Be sure to attend our interest meeting on Oct. 17, 2018 to learn how to become health communicators! Please visit our page for more information and to RSVP.
Will My Visit be Confidential?
Virginia state law allows us to provide some services without parental consent. That means that in most cases, if a teen has asked for or received services listed above, we cannot legally share information regarding that service with the parent or guardian.
How Much do Services Cost?
Services are provided FREEof charge (since billing a health insurance plan risks indirectly notifying the parent that a teen sought TWC services). Contact a Teen Wellness clinic staffer for more information on what and when information is withheld. No one will be denied services for their inability to pay.
