Jefferson is committed to enhancing the environment for all sexual orientations and gender identities. Our responsibility to the LGBTQ+ community, particularly when it comes to healthcare, is not just a goal – it is a priority. For the LGBTQ+ community, we know that disparities, both in and out of healthcare, is a major issue. Jefferson’s LGBTQ+ Executive Committee, LGBTQ+ Health Champions Group and the Jefferson LGBTQ+ Student Group have created strategy, initiatives and activities to promote LGBTQ+ both internal and external to Jefferson.
