Summary: On June 15, 2022, President Biden issued a Pride Month Executive Order directing key federal agencies to take comprehensive action to advance and protect LGBTQ+ health and equality.

Summary: GLMA congratulates Jesse Ehrenfeld, MD, MPH, on his historic election as president-elect of the American Medical Association. Dr. Ehrenfeld’s election as the first openly gay president-elect of the AMA is more than a milestone. For the AMA to be led by a physician who is not just openly LGBTQ+ but who has made advocacy for our community a cornerstone of his career is a groundbreaking achievement not just for Dr. Ehrenfeld but also for LGBTQ+ healthcare professionals and allies who have worked over many years to ensure associations are responsive to the LGBTQ+ community.
