Ask a Question

This is a place where BridgeUP scholars and family members can get answers to their questions about teen health issues.

Ask your health questions in the box below! Each week we’ll post the answers to the questions we receive,  because other people may have the same concerns and can benefit from the information we provide.

Your questions will be answered by the BeWell staff at Columbia University.

If you have an urgent question, please contact your health provider for assistance. If you do not have a personal health provider, please consult our Community Resource Guide or click this link to submit a query on our self-referral form.

Please note that we only provide assistance for scholars and families who are enrolled in the NYPL BridgeUP program.

We provide general health information and education on this site. Please remember that nothing on this web site should be considered medical advice, which can only be given to you by your personal health care provider. BeWell advises teens and their families to discuss all information and questions related to health with a health care professional.

If you have any difficulties with this form, please email
