ANN ARBOR – The University of Michigan Medical School’s LGBT student group, Bisexuals, Gays, Lesbians and Allies in Medicine is coordinating UofM medical school’s first weeklong LGBT Health Awareness Week for March 14-18. The week’s events are open to the public and will take place in the North
Lecture Hall of Medical Science Building II at the U-M Medical School off of Catherine Street.
Elisabeth Gruskin, Dr.P.H., of the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute will give the keynote address on “Caring for the LGBT communities: medical concerns and health disparities.” Other topics addressed through the week will include same-sex parenting and an exploration by BGLAM members of the healthcare-related rights and privileges denied to LGBT individuals because they cannot marry.
Registration is not required, but BGLAM requests that non-medical students who wish to attend fill out a brief and confidential online survey at http://lgbthaw2005.shorturl.com.
Snacks and lunches will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis with preference to students. Donations will also be accepted to help fund future LGBT health-related events. A program guide of events for LGBT Health Awareness Week and a physician resource guide explaining standards of care for LGBT patients, including a physician referral list of LGBT-friendly physicians, will be distributed.
