MyChart access for teens is different than it is for children or adults

Safeguarding a childís health is one of the most important duties facing a parent or guardian. There are immunizations to track, milestones to monitor and colds to pamper, all naturally under a parentís total direction.

For instance, a 16 year old undergoing cancer treatment may benefit by having full access for her parents and for herself. To contact the Health Information Management department at UC Davis, please see contact details under Additional Info section on this page.
