The final round of the Best of Gay City Readers' Choice Contest is complete and the winners are in.
Dating back more than 40 years to its roots in the St. Mark’s Community Clinic and the Gay Men’s Health Project, the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center –– once housed at the LGBT Community Center, since the late ‘90s at 356 West 18th Street –– offers health services to the LGBT community regardless of ability to pay. Last year, Callen-Lorde served over 15,000 patients, more than a third of them uninsured, for whom they provided $7 million-plus in unreimbursed care.
Providing primary care, oral health service, and mental health care to men and women, with specialized expertise in serving the transgender community, Callen-Lorde has also distinguished itself in stepping up in special circumstances –– whether vaccinating large numbers of gay men when a meningitis vaccine broke out in late 2012 or in the early dispensing of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP, as an HIV prevention treatment.
