Protecting Student Medical Privacy Webinar
In conjunction with Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) and other panelists, ACHA Past President Sarah Van Orman, MD, MMM, participated in an important webinar hosted by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) in June 2015. Past focus on the confidentiality of student counseling and medical services provoked a significant national debate about the role — and interplay — of FERPA, HIPAA, and state medical confidentiality laws. In this webinar, the panelists looked at this issue from various legal and ethical viewpoints and provided insight on how to best protect the privacy of student health records.

To view this webinar, please create an account on the IAPP site. The webinar can be viewed at no cost.
