Departments Dedicated to the LGBTQ Community

Several departments at Boston Children’s are focused on providing culturally competent care to our LGBTQ patients.

  • The Division of Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine provides primary and specialty care services to patients ages 10 to 23. The Division founded the Boston Leadership Education in Adolescent Health (LEAH) Program, which aims to improve the health of adolescents in the United States through education, research and program development. Its goal is to train the next generation of health care leaders in adolescent health. The LEAH Program currently leads several research projects on adolescent health issues, including:
    • HIV
    • Sexually transmitted diseases
    • Sexual orientation
    • Effects of media on child health
