Prism is the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex & allied (LGBTQIA) organization at UQ-Ochsner’s School of Medicine. The goal of Prism is to improve medical care provided to the LGBT patient population. Disparities in healthcare access and quality for the LGBT population has been known to exist. Prism aims to close the gap through educational speakers and workshops that identify and focus on factors affecting healthcare delivery for LGBT persons. We also hope to create safe spaces through training, giving medical students the tools and information they need to establish effective physician-patient relationships with their LGBT patients.
