ADVOCACY: FDA Blood Donations and MSM

Many of you have been working hard to get the FDA ban on MSM and blood donations overturned. As you know, it recently got changed to a three month abstinence period. Which is still fear based and not science based. Along with the AMA, GLMA, your advocacy, op/eds – the national LGBTQ organization GLAAD is working on a public education campaign.

Some great LGBTQ doctors on the West Coast are aiming to get some great LGBTQ doctors from Harvard engaged in this work. Two ways:

  1. Sign the Petition from GLAAD
  2. Make a video for GLAAD. Learn more here.

GLAAD is hoping to get videos of gay male physicians from diverse backgrounds. I would love to connect you directly with the team so reply privately to Jessica Halem if you are interested.
