University Health Services adds LGBT health Web resources

April 02, 2012

A new page on the Penn State University Health Services (UHS) website provides health care resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students. "It is our goal to provide excellent and accessible care to all Penn State students," said UHS Director Margaret Spear. "Our hope is that this resource page will facilitate and enrich dialog between LGBT students and their health care providers and result in the highest quality care possible."

"LGBT individuals face a number of unique health concerns," said Allison Subasic, director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Ally (LGBTA) Student Resource Center. "It is our hope that LGBT students will use these resources to make better informed decisions about their health care."

UHS provides nationally accredited medical care and health promotion services that help students achieve and maintain optimal health. In addition to medical treatment for illness and injury, on-site services include lab, X-ray, pharmacy, a nutrition clinic and physical therapy. Students can schedule appointments online at http://studentaffairs.psu.edu/health/myUHS or call 814-863-0774.

The UHS LGBT resource page is available at http://studentaffairs.psu.edu/health/services/clinicalServices/lgbtHealth.shtml.
