Medical student wins LGBT award

PHILADELPLHIA -- Drexel University student Bobby Kelly was honored March 10 with the 2012 LGBT Health Achievement Award by the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association and the American Medical Student Association for drawing attention to LGBT health issues.

Kelly, a fourth-year medical student, has been involved in many stages of this process, from working as a volunteer in youth clinics to organizing two national events to his role as the AMSA regional coordinator of the LGBT grassroots organizing committee from 2010 to 2011.

Kelly, who graduates this May and will be starting his residency in family medicine and preventative medicine at Concord Hospital and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire, co-founded the LGBT Alliance of Students Organized for Health with fellow fourth-year Drexel medical student Allison Myers. The LASOH hosts a variety of events to bring together Philadelphia’s medical students to socialize and to provide support for LGBT health issues.
