Our Grantees

Across the Foundation’s priority areas, our grantees are working to improve the health of the public through innovative research and programs.  The Foundation awards up to 40 grants on a rotating schedule each year.

Enhancing Education about the Health Care Needs of LGBT People and Ending Invisibility

Theme: New Curriculum Content

Institution: The Fenway Institute

Grant Type: President’s Grant

Award Amount: $35,000

Grant Awarded: October 2014

Principal Investigator: Harvey J. Makadon, MD

This award supports Grand Rounds trainings at up to 15 health care institutions on LGBT health issues. The trainings will focus on the importance of removing barriers to accessing affirmative and quality care for people in the LGBT community and the need for all primary care providers to take a history of sexual health—an area much neglected in medical education but critical to understanding a broad range of issues including the sexual orientation and gender identity of people seen in a health care provider’s office.
