Championing LGBTQ+ Health & Inclusion with Dr. Mitch Lunn, A04

2023 Lyon & Bendheim Citizenship Award Lecture

Tuesday, March 7 | 5:30 PM ET | Rabb Room, Barnum Hall

Representation matters, especially for diverse and underrepresented communities who face unique health disparities. Join us for a conversation with Tufts alumnus Dr. Mitch Lunn, A04, to hear how he has dedicated his career to closing this gap through innovative technology and civically engaged research and to championing sexual and gender minority (SGM) people in health care and beyond. Dr. Lunn will be presented with the 2023 Lyon & Bendheim Citizenship Award in honor of his advocacy of SGM people's health, inclusion and well-being and his engaging vulnerable and hard-to-reach populations on the local and national level. Dr. Lunn is Assistant Professor (Nephrology) of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine and co-director of PRIDEnet and The PRIDE Study. Read Dr. Mitch Lunn's full bio.

A reception will follow the event at 6:30 pm in the Barnum lobby, and all are welcome to attend! Sponsored by the Community Health Department and the LGBT Center at Tufts. To register for in-person attendance, visit: Remote viewers can participate at this link.
