In Spring 2012, UAMS students initiated the formation of the LGBT Health Alliance. The goals of the group are:

1. To provide a safe and secure environment for LGBT students, faculty and staff, and their allies.

2. To help educate students, faculty and staff on issues facing the LGBT population to ensure culturally competent health care professionals.

3. To engage with the LGBT community at large to develop collaborative partnerships to foster health.
