Please join us for our 17th Annual Breakfast of Legends this spring 2022.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone the 17th Annual Breakfast of Legends, originally scheduled for this November 18. While we were looking forward to celebrating our Legends with you, we do not want to risk anyone’s health or safety given the increase in COVID-19 cases nationwide. We are currently planning to host the Breakfast of Legends in the spring of 2022.

We would be thrilled if you would join us to celebrate our Legends: the visionary leaders who make our work possible and create a true difference in the lives of young people. At the Breakfast, you will also hear courageous teen patients share their stories in their own words, and meet our dedicated staff.

The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center is recognized worldwide for uniquely serving adolescents and young adults with high-quality confidential, comprehensive, integrated services. Each year, we serve more than 12,000 patients ages 10-26, all at no cost to them. We provide primary, sexual and reproductive health, mental health, optical, health education, and legal services, overwhelmingly to those most often underserved by conventional health care services.

This year, we feel especially grateful to be able to gather in person to honor and celebrate our Legends with you. By purchasing tables or tickets, placing an advertisement in our e-journal, or making a tax-deductible contribution, you will help NYC’s young people become healthier, happier, and more fulfilled.
