AAD Releases Position Statement on SGM Health in Dermatology

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) approved a comprehensive position statement on sexual and gender minority (SGM) health in dermatology during its Annual Meeting in Washington, DC in early March. The effort, spearheaded by the AAD Expert Resource Group on LGBTQ/SGM Health, affirms the Academy's commitment to the health and well-being of sexual and gender minority individuals. The statement supports evidence-based coverage of gender-affirming therapy, and advocates for removal of barriers to care along with inclusive and comprehensive research efforts and curricula across the learning continuum.  The effort underscores the role of dermatologists in the care of LGBTQ/SGM individuals and demonstrates how all specialty societies can support LGBTQ/SGM health.


GLMA was proud to have collaborated with the AAD Expert Resource Group on LGBTQ/SGM Health on activities during its Annual Meeting, including the new position statement on SGM health in dermatology.
