Flu Season is Just Around the Corner
The influenza (flu) vaccine is a benefit to you. Yearly flu vaccination helps to reduce time away from work for flu related illness, medical costs and the spread of flu. The best defense against the flu is getting vaccinated and we encourage everyone to do so to protect you, and reduce the risk of spreading flu to others, such as patients, coworkers and family members. Get your flu shot at VUSN and avoid the flu this year.

The P.R.I.D.E. (Pursuing Respect, Inclusion, Diversity and Equity) program aims to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) individuals and their allies by providing an avenue through which any member of the Vanderbilt Community can show their support. The training is 3 hours and happens 2-3 times per semester.
-By participating in the P.R.I.D.E. Training, we hope you will leave with the following outcomes:
-Understand basic LGBTQI+ terminology and understand the importance of continued education post-training.
-Communicate with intent, feeling, and understanding (specifically as it relates to identities of sexuality and gender).
-Recognize stereotypes, privilege, and intersectional identities (and how they affect our everyday lives/conversations).
-Understand how to continuously pursue allyship in a variety of settings, communities, and spaces.
-Know how to utilize resources (such as LGBTQI Life, as well as local and national resources) to educate ourselves and support others.
