A Statement About Inclusion and Respect

A statement about inclusion and respect from Paul Genecin, M.D., Director, Yale Health:

Change is always accompanied by uncertainty, and I understand that recent political discourse has led some to wonder about their place in American society.  I can assure you that at Yale Health, every individual is welcome and respected. Yale Health and Yale University are committed to providing students with health care that is safe, confidential, culturally sensitive and respectful of individual choices and priorities. We provide care to all students regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, immigration status or political views.  We are committed to continuing our support for reproductive rights including low- or no-cost access to effective contraception and other family planning services.  We believe that healthcare is only effective in a setting where all patients can talk freely with their providers without fear of negative repercussions.          

Questions or concerns?  Please call my office (203-432-0076) and we will be glad to help.
