Welcome to SCLMA's website!
As the LGBT organization for healthcare providers in the Southern California area for more than 30 years, we are always striving to serve your needs better. This new website will help us disseminate information and handle dues payment online more efficiently. We have enhanced our referral directory to be more user-friendly for members as well as the general public. Members will be able to change their directory information themselves by logging in to a personal account. Members who want to highlight their practice will have the option to have a premium listing and reach more potential patients.
We look forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming socials and events. Most of our events are open to all LGBT health care providers (not for members only). Join us for networking and fun with your friends in the LGBT community!
Our Hagan-Schneider Medical School Grants continues to give deserving LGBT medical students in local medical schools financial support to assist them in their journey to become healthcare practitioners.
Thank you for all your continued support for SCLMA!
