Safe Zone LGBT Allies Training


“Safe Zone” is a program designed to increase the overall campus community’s understanding of and capacity to address issues faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) persons. Effective implementation of Safe Zone programs requires the identification, training and “visibility” of institutional allies advocating for the LGBT community. The Safe Zone LGBT Allies Training was specifically designed for Weill Cornell Medical College and Memorial Sloan Kettering community members to acquire the knowledge and skills to serve as an “Ally.”

Nelson Sanchez, MD and Kevin Johnson will co-facilitate an interactive session to train individuals about LGBT identity and help them gain knowledge and skills to serve as an effective Ally.


This course is for members of the Memorial Sloan Kettering and Weill Cornell Medical College community.


Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center designates this educational activity for a maximum of 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
