The Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) House of Delegates recently passed House Resolution #15-206 calling on PAMED to advocate to expand access to eliminate healthcare disparities for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pennsylvanians, advocate for future research efforts that are specifically designed to investigate LGBT heath issues, and to make information on LGBT health issues available to Pennsylvania physicians.
PAMED is currently forming a Work Group to provide subject matter expertise to PAMED on these important issues and engage members and stakeholders in developing strategy to move our work forward.
Alder Health Services has been invited to participate in this important work as a member of the PAMED Work Group. The Work Group will guide PAMED’s Board of Trustees and House of Delegates in the implementation of this resolution. The Work Group will be chaired by Dr. Jarrett Sell, PAMED Member and Medical Director at Alder Health Services. The group will be supported by PAMED staff, including PAMED’s Executive Vice President. The Work Group’s charge will be to develop an action plan and make recommendations to the PAMED Board based on the House resolution.
