Straight for Equality in Healthcare invites you to join the growing number of healthcare providers who want to find out more about what it means to be an ally in healthcare, learn more about the specific healthcare concerns/needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) community, and/or look for everyday actions they can take to support LGBTQ+ people at their practice.

Healthcare providers across the country already know that when patients feel comfortable that communication and rapport will improve and in turn benefit the care that the patient receives. Some added benefits of being an ally to people who are LGBTQ+ in healthcare include greater patient retention, improved treatment adherence and compliance, and increased patient satisfaction. And everyone knows that good news spreads fast. Satisfied patients are more likely to recommend your practice to their friends and family.
