The Penn Medicine Program for LGBT Health supports LGBT individuals in the workplace, classroom, and healthcare settings by promoting an LGBT-inclusive climate and culture. Fostering institutional climate and visibility will ensure that LGBT faculty, students, staff, and patients feel fully welcomed and accepted at Penn.
The vision of the Program for LGBT Health is to improve the care of LGBT populations by becoming a local and national leader in LGBT patient care, education, research, and advocacy. To accomplish this vision, the program will focus on five areas:
- Institutional climate and visibility
- Health Education
- Patient Care
- Community Outreach
