Join the School-Based Health Alliance on Thursday, September 14th, from 12:00 – 1:00 pm ET for an informative webinar providing an overview of HIPAA and FERPA, the two federal privacy laws that are most often implicated when it comes to confidential information in schools and SBHCs (school-based health centers). Featuring subject matter experts Abigail English, JD, and Rebecca Gudeman, JD, MPA from the National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) this webinar will use case studies to address some common questions such as how to know whether records are subject to HIPAA or FERPA and when a release is necessary for information sharing under each law.

The webinar will explain the role of state confidentiality and consent laws in answering these questions and provide guidance on how to think through confidentiality and information-sharing questions. It will explore best practices in information sharing and confidentiality designed to maximize the benefits of health care programs, consistent with legal requirements.
