LGBTQ Health at Temple

A Safe, Supportive Environment

Equality is at the heart of our mission at Temple University Health System and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM). Across these institutions, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors are treated equally in a safe environment that maintains their respect and dignity.

With strong internal support, Temple University Health System and LKSOM are constantly evolving to best meet the needs of its own constituents and the region’s greater LGBTQ community. Our goal is to educate and inform, improve care, foster collaboration, and support every person’s educational and healthcare needs.

The Task Force’s 140 members represent a wide variety of disciplines from the Health System and School. These members sit on nine subcommittees that work to continuously improve the environment, opportunities, services and policies for the LGBTQ community.

"The mission of the Temple Health LGBTQ Alliance Task Force is to provide and advocate for LGBTQ-centered care, education, and research across the Health System, School of Medicine, and the community we serve."
