LGBTQ+ Health focuses on spreading awareness on issues that affect queer providers and patients, such as ally training, transgender health, homelessness, HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, and more. To this end, we have a wonderful lecture series that is geared toward medical students who want to be better allies to their peers and future patients. We also have lots of service opportunities to give back to the Houston LGBTQ+ community and fun social events to build a network at McGovern! Additionally, we work on projects with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to provide better queer visibility at the school and make every student’s voice heard.
