KCU’s Center for Medical Education Innovation wears the colors of PRIDE in support of the LGBTQIA+ communities.
Dear KCU Community,
June is PRIDE month when the world's LGBTQIA+ communities come together and celebrate the freedom to be themselves.
At KCU, we are proud of the many ways our campus communities embrace inclusion. A new and recent effort to expand the reach of our physician training curriculum includes the often-ignored topics such as caring for LGBTQIA+ patients, patients with HIV or substance use disorders and poverty which lead to poor access of care. KCU graduates will be uniquely prepared to improve the well-being of the communities we serve.
One of our newest educators, Dr. Benjamin Grin, masterfully integrated many of the social determinants of health into his new lecture series, magnifying yet another of our core values – empathy – and cultivating the keen understanding of the needs of each patient.
Please read more about the scope of his innovative work along with other recent compelling stories below.
