As you know, I'm passionate about health equity for the LGBT community. As a nurse, I provide important care for the community, that's why I am excited to be participating in a Leadership Cohort of Nursing Champions for LGBT Health Equity! Through this eight-month program, I am developing leadership skills and learning about unique health challenges that impact the LGBT patient population.
As one of the main projects for this program, I want to be help improve LGBT health in the Lehigh Valley. Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides health promotion for the LGBT community in the region to help reduce disparities around tobacco, cancer, diabetes, and HIV and I'm working to raise funds to support this important work!
I hope that by the end of this program, the Health Programs at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center will be in a strong position to continue to promote LGBT health in the Lehigh Valley. And I'm asking for your help!
Donations are tax-deductible, but that's not why you should give. I hope you'll give to this important project because you agree with me that a healthy community is an equal community, and your support of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center can play a significant role in making health equity a reality.
