LGBTQ Health Interest Group (LGBTQ-HIG)

The LGBTQ Health Interest Group is a student group that welcomes members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer/questioning communities, allies, and any students interested in learning more about health issues facing the LGBTQ community. Throughout theyear, we host lunch talks, organize advocacy opportunities for LGBTQ health, and network with similar groups on the UMB campus and beyond. Our most recent efforts involve adding to the medical school curriculum to emphasize the critical needs of this unique population and enhance LGBTQ health education for future physicians. If you wish to be informed in the future about our events, whether social or informational, or wish to be involved in our advocacy efforts please send an email to and we would be glad to include you in our email list. Any questions, comments, or concerns may also be addressed to the above email address. If you would prefer to anonymously contact the group, we ask that you please email Dawn Roberts in the Office of Student Affairs ( We hope to see you at one of our events very soon!
