Michigan Medicine focuses on patient and family centered care for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ+) guests. Members of the LGBTQ+ community continue to face a variety of health care disparities. Together, we can all make our health system an inclusive space of healing for all patients and families.
The Advisory Committee for the Advancement of LGBTQ Health at Michigan Medicine (ACALHM) aims to create enduring and affirming spaces to promote the health and well-being of patients, families, learners, staff, faculty, and visitors of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions at Michigan Medicine. In pursuit of this aim, the role of ACALHM is to:
1) gather key information about the structures, policies, barriers and facilitators to promoting LGBTQ health at Michigan Medicine; and
2) provide input and make recommendations to help guide institutional efforts at Michigan Medicine.
