RHC's stated mission is to promote equitable health care delivery through awareness and education about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans (LGBT) health issues and disparities. The group was founded to represent diversity both on the Touro University Campus and in medicine.
The existence of RHC is supported by Touro University's non-discrimination policy, which lists sexual orientation as a protected status. RHC's mission is directed towards future doctors. We believe that it is vital for medical students to be exposed to the realities LGBT persons face in seeking health care.
