MUSC Culturally Sensitive Care Program

Addressing the Healthcare Needs of the LGBTQIA+ Community

Community Sponsors

We invite you to partner with us for the 4th Annual Culturally Sensitive Care program at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). This program aims to educate MUSC employees and students in culturally sensitive care approaches using the framework of the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards published by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (USDHHS) Office of Minority Health. This year, topics will be primarily focused on addressing the healthcare needs of the LGBTQIA+ community with updates from local, state, and national guest speakers including topics such as terminology/pronouns, inclusive workforce, policies and advocacy, mental health, transgender community needs, and sexual health. Sessions will also include discussion on health disparities, racial/ethnic factors, social determinants of health, and vulnerable/underserved populations.

This workshop is being coordinated by the MUSC College of Health Professions and MUSC Libraries in collaboration with the MUSC Office of Equity, the MUSC Office of Student Programs and Study Diversity, and other related departments within the university.

We are currently seeking community partners and sponsors for this year’s program including:

  • Sponsorship for the event’s keynote speaker and/or community panelists
  • Sponsorship for boxed lunches and/or refreshments
  • Sponsorship for door prizes

Benefits to community partners and sponsoring organizations include:

  • Invitation to attend and receive recognition at the two-day workshop on October 1 & 8, 2021.
  • A list of sponsors will be made available to all attendees as well as MUSC Students, Faculty, and Staff during and after the event through our website, campus newspaper, and social media.
  • Sponsors with contributions valued at $100 or more will be recognized as “Featured Sponsors,” and sponsors contributing $1000 or more will be recognized as “Community Champions.”

Contributions should be made out to the “Student Alliance for Equality” and may be submitted by mail to the address below by September 30, 2021:
