Program for LGBTI Health holding welcome reception today

The Program for LGBTI Health is holding a welcome reception for incoming students, residents and faculty on Thursday, Aug. 31, 4 to 6 p.m. in the third floor student lounge of Light Hall. Refreshments will be served. 

LGBTI patients experience disparities in access to and quality of care, leading to preventable, adverse health outcomes including elevated risk for specific chronic diseases and increased rates of suicide and depression. The Vanderbilt Program for LGBTI Health addresses health disparities, improves the health of LGBTI patients, supports education around LGBTI Health, and fosters research on the optimal ways to care for LGBTI patients and families.
