The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Total Health Care Extraordinary Contribution Award

On Friday, April 12, I had the honor and the privilege of being a recipient of Kaiser Permanente's (KP's) LGBT Total Health Care Extraordinary Contribution Award.
 
The awards dinner was held at the Omni hotel in downtown Los Angeles, which was the host hotel for KP's first national LGBT health symposium April 12-13.
 
It is such a deep honor to be recognized for my medical education on LGBT health by the very colleagues who also strive to provide the best culturally competent care to the LGBT members we serve.
 
The award was presented by Drs. Michael Tome, Maria Carrasco, and Mateo Ledezma. Dr. Tome is the area medical director of KP Los Angeles, Dr. Carrasco is the regional physician lead for culturally responsive care, and Dr. Ledezma is the clinical director of the Center of Excellence in Culturally Competent Care for LGBTi Health Equity.
 
According to the award program, the extraordinary contribution award is given to a "person or group, either within Kaiser Permanente or from the community, who has demonstrated an extraordinary dedication to improving total health awareness in the LGBT community. This person, or group, should be recognized by his or her peers as a person that has contributed significantly in closing health disparity, promoting awareness, and improving overall total health care in the LGBT community."
 
I feel so fortunate to be recognized for my life's passion.
