Our Mission Statement

The LGBT People in Medicine group has a three-fold mission:

  • SUPPORTIVE: To foster an accepting and supportive environment for the LGBT students and their allies in the Wayne State University medical community. This also involves establishing professional contacts with LGBT faculty members, residents, and other area physicians.

  • ADVOCACY: To educate our peers at the medical school on health and social issues in the LGBT community by inviting speakers and sponsoring awareness and visibility programs

  • COMMUNITY: To serve the LGBT community in the Metro Detroit area through volunteering, increasing awareness on health issues, and working with other community organizations to maximize our effectiveness


Coming Out Day - Students were asked to wear red to show their support.
