TWC Programs Student Health Advisory Board

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.

Immigration status is not checked or recorded. We will ask you if you live in the City of Alexandria. 


How Much do Services Cost?

Services are provided FREE of 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.


Do I Qualify for TWC Services?

The Teen Wellness Center offers CONFIDENTIAL services to ALL teenagers aged 12 to 19 years old, who live in the City of Alexandria.
