This week is National LGBT Health Awareness Week!

This week, March 22 – 26, 2021, we are celebrating National LGBT Health Awareness Week at Mount Sinai Morningside. This year’s theme, “Out for Equity”, arises from the Coalition’s Inaugural State of LGBTQ Health National Survey, highlighting the need for ongoing engagement of the LGBTQ+ community on health care issues.

To raise awareness about LGBT Health, we hosted a tabling to give staff the opportunity to learn more about LGBTQ+ health, to grab some candy, and pick up some cool swag from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, including “All Are Welcome” window stickers! Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

Homophobia, stigmas, and discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community continue to exist in the United States and can adversely impact health outcomes. At the Mount Sinai Health System, we are committed to meeting the specific health care needs of the LGBTQ+ community with respect and compassion.

We are proud to celebrate LGBT Health Awareness Week this year and every year and to stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ colleagues and community. 🌈💙
