How Iowa City Became a Focal Point for LGBTQ+ Activism

Check out this article from the UI Center for Advancement’s Iowa magazine. It features Hawkeye Pride Alumni Network and our forum from March 2022 on LGBTQ+ History at Iowa!

University of Iowa Health Care is committed to striving toward providing welcoming and affirming care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning patients. The HEI has proven to be a valuable resource that has highlighted opportunities for further improvements and provided best practices from organizations across the country. Being recognized as a leader by the HEI is something that our organization celebrates and proudly highlights in our marketing campaigns. This recognition is important for current and prospective patients, students, faculty, and staff.
