LASOH: LGBTQ Alliance of Students Organized for Health
Philadelphia LGBTQ Alliance of Students Organized for Health (LASOH) was created as a city-wide health students coalition to serve as a sustainable means of furthering health initiatives for the city’s LGBTQ population.
Philadelphia LASOH was the outgrowth of informal projects focused on LGBTQ health initiatives coordinated by students at a number of Philadelphia medical schools. Through these collaborations it became evident that the wealth of health professions students in the Philadelphia region was a powerful means of effecting change. In order to harness the abilities and enthusiasm of health students dedicated to serving the LGBTQ community, LASOH was created.
