Augusta, GA -
It's "Come Out For Health" week at Georgia Regents University, which is coordinated by GRU Equality.
Activities focus on health awareness for people who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, or those who may question their sexuality.
Monday, a patient-provider panel was set up to provide information and answer questions.
Event organizers say providing support is the most important thing. "I think that's the main thing that we want to do here is to get out a positive message and show people that MCG is a welcoming place and a caring place, regardless of your sexual orientation," says GRU Equality co-founder Justin Neisler.
Tuesday, at noon, a professor from the University of South Carolina will speak diversity versus inclusion in school and in practice, at the downtown campus. The event will be in room 1222 of the Georgia Regents University Health Sciences Building.
