Resources for Alumni

 


"The LGBT Program has given me the health background and expertise necessary to examine and revise health curricula and standards to ensure they are relevant and taught appropriately to reduce the health disparities LGBTQ youth experience. ... This is a tangible success as I fight to ensure LGBTQ youth receive the health education they so desperately need and deserve!"
