Medical:

As an adult, you have the right and the responsibility to make your own decisions about your medical care.   This means that you have the right and responsibility to decide if you should have a medical test, treatment, or procedure done or medication prescribed.  Prior to leaving foster care, you should have received training on what it means to be your own medical consenter.  For more information, and links to the training, please see below:
