Rainbow Health Coalition

About

The Rainbow Health Coalition (RHC) is a group of students, faculty, and staff who promote health equity for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex people (LGBTI). Membership is open to everyone, straight allies are especially welcomed.

RHC's stated mission is to promote equitable health care delivery through awareness and education about LGBTI health issues and disparities. The group was founded to represent diversity both on the Touro University campus and in medicine.

The existence of RHC is supported by Touro University’s non-discrimination policy, which lists sexual orientation as a protected status. RHC's mission is directed towards future health professionals. We believe that it is vital for health students to be exposed to the realities LGBTI persons face in seeking health care.

Most recently we have established Trans Awareness Week, Trans Day of Remembrance Vigil, and Gender Equity Week.
