As the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, I am running my tenth marathon with the MSAHC Run For Teens team! Along with our 50th birthday, this year is especially important to me because I will be running with my daughter, Daniela.
As a former patient and longtime director of MSAHC, I would personally like to invite you to consider making a contribution to help me keep our youth healthy by providing vital services—high-quality, comprehensive, confidential and free— for all those who come to us.
Your support means the world to us! On behalf of the young adults and adolescents that receive care and all of the staff here at the Center, thank you!

Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center is a unique, free health clinic providing comprehensive and integrated medical, sexual and reproductive, mental health, dental, optical and health and wellness education services to more than 10,000 young people between the ages of 10 and 24 each year.
For 50 years, the Center has been a critical resource for young people in NYC and beyond, most of whom would otherwise go without care. We have served adolescents and young adults by addressing their unique physical, sexual and reproductive, and behavioral and mental health needs.
We partner with our patients and work to educate them so that they are better able to advocate for themselves and others. Our wide-range of programs, including services for LBGQ+ and transgender youth, teen parents, trauma victims and survivors, HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs, substance abuse prevention and treatment programs, classes for nutrition and wellness, and legal and entitlement services address the diverse needs of the youth who use and rely on MSAHC.
We invite you to run for this important cause to make a difference in the lives of our young people, and the health of our community.
Every $1,000 raised will provide a full year of comprehensive health care to a young person in need. Please support our efforts to keep our youth happy, healthy and well educated by promoting health.
