LGBTQ+ Services is partnering with other offices and departments on campus to offer a range of activities to celebrate Pride on campus during the month of April, while students are still on campus. Look for the keynote talk given by Emily Newberry ’66, who will be describing how her life journey led her to advocating for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to cover transition-related healthcare.
