The Sellers Dorsey Foundation believes that solutions leading to the reduction and ultimate elimination of health disparities for the LGBT community will be found through collaboration and the development of unique and lasting partnerships.

Among the Foundation’s recent collaborations:

  • With the generous support of the Rockefeller Foundation, in 2012 the Sellers Dorsey Foundation hosted its first meeting to encourage this collaboration and build partnerships. This meeting brought together leaders in LGBT health policy, academics, broadcast and social media, and LGBT cultural competency training. Our report to the Rockefeller Foundation can be found here.
  • The Sellers Dorsey Foundation provided policy expertise to a statewide LGBT equality organization, drafting the organization’s recommendations for LGBT inclusion in the State Plan on Aging, which is required by the Older Americans Act.
  • The Sellers Dorsey Foundation teamed up with representatives from the Human Rights Campaign, the Equality Federation, Pander and SAGE to produce and disseminate a webinar explaining new federal guidance on same sex partners and Medicaid eligibility.
