Record $2.5 million donation by Keith Haring Foundation will fund Callen-Lorde's first Nurse Practitioner Fellowship in LGBTQ+ health

NEW YORK (November 7, 2019) - A historic partnership between Callen-Lorde Community Health Center and the Keith Haring Foundation will result in a medical innovation that will change the health care landscape: the first Keith Haring Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Fellowship in LGBTQ+ Health.

This health care innovation - the first in the United States - will be made possible by a $2.5 million donation to Callen-Lorde by the Keith Haring Foundation. It is the largest private gift ever made to Callen-Lorde, and the largest donation made by the Keith Haring Foundation in its three decades of operation. The gift will establish the Keith Haring LGBTQ+ Health Equity Endowment, which will fund the fellowship.

The fellowship will be officially announced at Callen-Lorde's Community Health Awards gala, to be held on Thursday, November 7, at Tribeca Rooftop in downtown Manhattan.

'Keith Haring was a visionary in the fight against HIV/AIDS, raising awareness, challenging stigma, and engaging hearts and souls through his art as a person living with HIV,' said Wendy Stark, executive director of Callen-Lorde Community Health Center. 'The Keith Haring Foundation continues his legacy, and this landmark grant to Callen-Lorde will significantly impact culturally competent health care access for LGBTQ people for years to come.'

Callen-Lorde's Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Fellowship in LGBTQ+ Health will be the first in the nation. The project will address a lack of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) training for clinical providers at the national, state, and local level. It will have large-scale impact by producing culturally competent providers who will then take the body of knowledge gained through their time in the program wherever they choose to practice after, and producing a guide that will assist other organizations to implement their own population-specific residency programs.

The fellowship will have a home within Callen-Lorde's brand-new site in downtown Brooklyn, slated to open in 2020 at 40 Flatbush Avenue Extension. The fourth clinical site will be designed specifically to meet the considerations for a successful residency program. The space will allow Callen-Lorde to nearly double its capacity, with an additional 25,000 square feet of space to provide critically needed health care services to LGBTQ+ New Yorkers, people living with HIV/AIDS, and the uninsured.

The Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Fellowship is a timely effort that directly responds to the need for entry-to-practice training for advanced practice nurses statewide, as well as calls from the Institute of Medicine, National Institute of Health, American Medical Association, and others for LGBTQ+ health care training.

Visit the Callen-Lorde website for additional information and to access the fellowship application: callen-lorde.org/haringfellowship

The mission of the Keith Haring Foundation is to sustain, expand, and protect the legacy of Keith Haring, his art, and his ideals. The foundation supports not-for-profit organizations that assist children, as well as organizations involved in education, prevention, and care related to HIV/AIDS.

Callen-Lorde is the global leader in LGBTQ health care. Since the days of Stonewall, Callen-Lorde has been transforming lives by providing a welcoming environment for LGBTQ communities to get quality care, free of judgment and regardless of ability to pay. In addition, Callen-Lorde pioneers research, advocacy, and education to drive positive change for LGBTQ communities around the globe. The first LGBTQ-centric health care provider, Callen-Lorde is widely recognized for its innovative HIV and transgender care. For more information about Callen-Lorde, visit www.callen-lorde.org.
