The LGBTQ Working Group oversees planning and protocols specific to the needs of LGB/Q and Transgender patients at the Student Health Service. The group's activities include but are not limited to: review of best practices and creation of protocols/visit templates, collaboration with campus partners and patients/students, advocacy with health insurance contractors, education of the SHS staff on LGBTQ issues, education of the broader university community about LGBTQ health issues, and scholarly work related to LGBTQ health. The Working Group also serves as a point of contact for concerns regarding LGBTQ health services at SHS.  Click here for the main SHS page describing LGBTQ Health Services.
