Underrepresented in Medicine: LGBTQ+
Wayne State University School of Medicine is dedicated to supporting those communities that are underrepresented in medicine. We continue to push to ensure our school is representing and listening to all populations while providing opportunities to these communities.
Join us on Dec. 9 at 3:30 p.m. to hear from the student organization, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People in Medicine.
LGBT People in Medicine group has a three-fold mission:
- Support: To foster an accepting and supportive environment for LGBT students and their allies in the Wayne State University medical community. This involves establishing professional contacts with LGBT faculty members, residents and area physicians.
- Advocacy: To educate our peers at the School of Medicine about health and social issues in the LGBT community by inviting speakers and sponsoring awareness and visibility programs.
- Community: To serve the LGBT community in metropolitan Detroit through volunteering, increasing awareness about health issues and working with other community organizations to maximize our effectiveness.
