In Spring 2012, UAMS students initiated the formation of the LGBT Health Alliance. The goals of the group are:
1. To provide a safe and secure environment for LGBT students, faculty and staff, and their allies.
2. To help educate students, faculty and staff on issues facing the LGBT population to ensure culturally competent health care professionals.
3. To engage with the LGBT community at large to develop collaborative partnerships to foster health.
A Message from our President
Welcome! I happy to introduce you to the UAMS Rainbow Health Alliance as the president for the year of 2020-2021. The UAMS Rainbow Health Alliance was founded in 2012 with the tent to serve LGBT+ students, faculty, and staff, and their allies, by providing a supportive environment, educational events focused on the LGBT+ population in medicine, and engaging with the local LGBT+ community. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Hope to see you around at one of our social, educational, or outreach events this year, or to help you find support you need on campus.
