LGBTQ in Medicine (LGBTQ)



LGBTQ in Medicine serves as our campus’ connection to the LGBTQ community in Phoenix. With a focus on LGBTQ health and social issues, we seek to foster a welcoming, supportive environment for our students and offer education about the health issues and difficulties affecting LGBTQ individuals, their families, and communities. We are dedicated to keeping the student body informed about issues surrounding the LGBTQ community by hosting social events, guest speakers, patient panels, and connecting students with LGBTQ events and service opportunities throughout the Valley. LGBTQ in Medicine is open to all students interested in learning more about the LGBTQ community and does not exclude participation of any individual based on race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
