HRSA Announces $248,000 LGBT Training Award to the Fenway Institute

Earlier in the week, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced it had awarded the Fenway Institute a $248,000 grant to create a national technical assistance and training center for LGBT health for community health centers. In a press release announcing the award, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said: “This award is an important step in HHS’ continuing effort to provide health care services to all people recognizing that different groups of people may have distinctive health care needs.”

GLMA congratulates the Fenway Institute for this significant award and project, which will improve the health and well being of LGBT people across the country. Several GLMA members have been invited to serve as Faculty and/or sit on the National Advisory Board for the project, including Past Presidents Jason Schneider and Christopher Harris, and Executive Director Hector Vargas.
