Advancing LGBT Health Care, Together

From the beginning, Pride in Practice has been dedicated to improving health care for our LGBT friends, family, and neighbors. We know LGBT people have unique medical needs, but as I have written on Medscape, KevinMD, and elsewhere, traditional medical education isn’t yet doing all that’s necessary to teach students and providers the best way to care for LGBT patients. Since the launch of Pride in Practice earlier this year, we’ve been honored to feature unique insights and perspectives from leading experts in the care of sexual and gender minority patients, helping to close this gap in provider education. Today, we take the next step.

I am excited to announce that Pride in Practice was recently recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity by the Internal Revenue Service. This means we are now able to accept tax-deductible donations to aid in our mission of publishing world-class educational materials. Through the generous donations of our readers, we look forward to providing even more value to our nation’s health care professionals and their patients by conducting original research, publishing clinical best practice guides, and much more.

But this bold vision is only possible with your support. If you believe in the work we’re doing and support providers bettering their clinical practice through continued education–if you think LGBT patients deserve equitable health care–I humbly ask for your donation at the link below. On behalf of the entire Pride in Practice team, thank you.
