Pride Club

The PRIDE Club is dedicated to improving the visibility and commitment to serving the Downstate LGBTQ+ community. We work to develop an affirming, open and inclusive academic and professional environment through educational and social opportunities. We advocate for the needs and concerns of LGBTQ+ students, staff, and patients through various student-led initiatives. We seek to enhance the Downstate/University Hospital LGBTQ+ community and to create an open and affirming medical school and hospital system.

We welcome students and residents from all disciplines, genders, sexualities, and identities to be involved.
