School Based Health Electronic Consents for Martin Luther King, Jr. HS Campus
School Based Health Program is excited to announce that we now have electronic consents for the parents/guardians of Martin Luther King, Jr. High School Campus to enroll their children into our Mount Sinai School Based Health Center program. Parents will be able to sign the consent on their phones or computers and they will be saved directly into Mount Sinai’s system - so students will not need to bring in signed forms! The new system will make it much easier for them to get the students enrolled into the health center and gain access to great healthcare.
Below you will find the link specifically created for your building with English and Spanish options. I ask that you include it on your website, orientation paperwork and any other appropriate correspondence. We particularly hope, you will share it will all of your new incoming students and their parents! Please contact me if you have any questions or have any issues with the link.

Guidance from Dr. Sanders
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center
remains open Monday-Saturday to serve young people, ages 10-26 years old.
All Mount Sinai School-Based Health Center Patients are also patients of the
Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center at 312 East 94th Street and can be seen at no charge,
just like at school.
However, in keeping with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the NYS Department of Health, we need to recommend that you stay home as much as you possibly can. You should only think about coming in to the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center if you have an immediate need.
Please message your medical provider through the MyChart app to see if it is necessary for you to come in.
If you do not have MyChart or are a new patient, please call (212) 423-3000. You may be able to speak to a doctor on the phone, and can schedule an appointment if you have an immediate need. The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center provides confidential, compassionate health care at no cost to patients, regardless of immigration or insurance status.
In light of the current circumstances, we are now accepting patients 10-26 years old.
If you believe an employer is violating either existing labor laws or recently issued executive orders by the Governor, please contact 311, the Attorney General’s office at (212) 416-8700or via email at Labor.Bureau@ag.ny.gov
