We will be joining the National Coalition for LGBT Health in their 9th annual celebration of LGBTQ Health Awareness Week. In keeping with the week's theme, "Come Out for Health", we will be inviting and challenging the supporters and allies we have through campus to "come-out" in support of our organization and cause. Events include an LGBT Cultural Competent Care Panel, campus and community adertivsing, and identification of LGBT-friendly providers. PLEASE BEGIN TO SPREAD THE WORD AND EXCITEMENT. More details will follow as they are arranged.
The GHSU ODI is celebrating April as National Diversity Month. The office sponsors several diversity months throughout the year, but currently does not have an LGBT celebration. So, this is our chance to get involved and encourage GHSU to include the LGBT community in their definition of "diversity". The office is still planning events and specifically looking for people from our community to get involved.
If your interested visit the ODI Diversity Month website.
Our next regular business meeting will be Monday, March 19th from noon to 1 in the Terrace Dining Hall of the GHS Medical Center. The primary focus will be finalizing plans and duties for the upcoming LGBT Health Awareness Week. Please join us as everyone's effort will be needed to make our first events as successful as possible.
We are an independent gay-straight alliance of faculty, staff, and graduate/professional students at Georgia Regents University with a mission to build a supportive environment for all our LGBTQ employees, students, patients, & visitors. Thank you for your support!
