WHO WE ARE
The Pride Alliance at the David Geffen School of Medicine is a social and support network for UCLA medical students, residents, and faculty who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ spectrums and allies of equality in medicine. All who are interested in learning more are welcome!
Lifting Each Other Up
As a student and faculty organization, we strive to provide networking and educational opportunities to connect with health professionals and students. We will facilitate mentoring and both personal and professional growth opportunities for students, faculty, and staff members.
As a student organization, we strive to hold the School of Medicine and university communities accountable and educate them about health issues facing LGBTQ+ patient. We will advocate on their behalf for competent and compassionate care. We believe that all physicians, future physicians, and medical personnel should know the health inequities faced by LGBTQ+ communities.
Helping the Community
The LGBTQIA+ community is vulnerable to experiencing health disparities due to societal stigma and discrimination. It is up to us as future health care professionals to address them. We will work closely with the LGBTQ+ community in Los Angeles and at UCLA to address these disparities.
There are multiple ways to get involved with Pride Alliance! Join us for a lunch time meeting or discussion, a social event, or take on a more active role within our organization by joining leadership. All who believe that LGBTQ patients have the basic human right to adequate healthcare or support those who are LGBTQ in medicine are welcome!
