Teen Pregnancy and Parenting Program

The Teen Age Pregnancy and Parenting Program (TAPP), a program in Women's Health, provides comprehensive medical and psychosocial services to pregnant adolescents. A full time social worker provides bilingual (English/Spanish) services, individual and group counseling, case management, health education, parenting groups, and La Maze classes. In addition to obstetrical services, the program provides preventive services in the clinic and the community.

Outreach activities focus on area high schools and adolescent health fairs. To insure continuity of care, there is a collaborative mother-child clinic jointly run by TAPP and Pediatrics called the Adolescent and Infants Mothers Clinic (AMIC). For an appointment for TAPP or AMIC please call (212) 746- 3157. The bilingual (English/Spanish) social worker Dalia Caballero, LMSW, is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at (212) 746-3042.
