Pride Month affords us a chance to reaffirm the osteopathic tenet that achieving one’s health potential requires attention to body, mind and spirit. Therefore, to help patients achieve health in the deepest sense of the word, we know we must commit to addressing the health inequities that prevent members of the LGBTQIA+ community—and everyone from marginalized populations—from being able to access safe and inclusive medical care.

This Pride Month, AACOM spoke with Nicole Wadsworth, DO, dean of the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine, about her efforts to address bias and health inequities among the LGBTQIA+ community and how colleges of osteopathic medicine can contribute to a more equitable healthcare landscape for LGBTQIA+ patients.

To celebrate Pride Month, Adrianne Jones, the chief admissions officer for Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, shares her perspective on how colleges of osteopathic medicine can better recruit and retain students from the LGBTQIA+ community.
