Services for Teens
Teens can access services on their own, and we see them regardless of whether or not they have made an appointment. Health educators help support youth in learning about their healthcare options, making healthy choices, resisting coercion, communicating well, and preventing unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.

Community Health Education
Educating members of our community is an integral component of the Family Planning Center's mission. In addition to individualized health education and counseling services, the Family Planning Center conducts community-based outreach and activities to impact public awareness on issues such as pregnancy prevention, STI and HIV prevention, male health, adolescent development and sexuality, and the availability of insurance programs. Special health education outreach initiatives target high-priority populations, such as adolescents, immigrants, and the uninsured.
The Young Men's Health Clinic, operated by NewYork-Presbyterian, is run by Professor David Bell, MD, MPH, who is jointly appointed in the department of Pediatrics and the Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health.
