A Cause for Applause

Join us this November for A Cause for Applause, a benefit for the LGBT Elder Initiative. We are celebrating not only our work, but also the resilience, activism, and strength of our LGBT older adult communities. We are also celebrating the accomplishments of providers who have worked to improve their services to LGBT communities while recognizing the need to further advance the cultural competence of the aging services and healthcare systems.

We will be honoring Dr. Rachel Levine, Secretary of Health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, with the Edwin J. Bomba Memorial Award for Advocacy. Secretary Levine has been an inspiring and impactful leader in the LGBT community and has used her platform in state government to advance several initiatives that are improving the lives of LGBT older Pennsylvanians. 

We will be debuting a new award this year: The Founders’ Award for LGBT Health Equity, named in honor of our Founding Board of Directors. We are excited to award this inaugural Founders’ Award to the Jefferson Health Champions, a coalition of medical providers at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital working to create greater access to LGBT culturally competent care and to promote health equity for LGBT older adults.

Tickets are on sale now!
