UC Davis Health is dedicated to curating online LGBTQ+ health information and improving care for the patients we serve. As part of our mission, we have created this map along with the Improving OUTcomes blog, the UC Davis LGBTQ+ Health Facebook page, and our other tabs above for patients and providers.

Our Health Resources Map features LGBTQ+ health and advocacy resources from every region in California, as well as nationally. We plan for this map to be a growing and expanding source of information as we gain input from healthcare providers, advocates, social services providers and, of course, patients. If you know of an LGBTQ+ champion organization in your community, please send the name of the organization along with any online information to ioc@ucdavis.edu.
