Diversity and Inclusion

LGBT OutList

The Feinberg School of Medicine LGBT OutList is a public and voluntary listing of members of the Feinberg community who identify as LGBT. The OutList serves as a resource for students and community members alike.

Through the OutList, the Queers & Allies Student Group seeks to:

  • Shine light on the impact that members of the LGBT community are making throughout Feinberg
  • Foster informal mentoring relationships between faculty, staff, and students who can discuss topics specific to LGBT issues in medicine

We love our cisgender and straight allies, but this list is exclusively for the LGBT community. Please consider joining the LGBT AllyList. If you would like to be added to the OutList or would like to update your current listing, please fill out our OutList Entry Form. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

Learn more about ISGMH Here: http://isgmh.northwestern.edu/ The Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) was founded in 2015 and is the first university-wide institute in the country focused exclusively on research to improve the health of the sexual and gender minority (SGM) community. ISGMH grew from director Dr. Brian Mustanski’s IMPACT LGBT Health and Development Program, which has been conducting state-of-the art translational research with LGBT youth populations since 2008. As a university-wide institute, our mission is to connect scholars from numerous disciplines with the SGM community to forge collaborations and stimulate innovative research to improve SGM health and wellbeing. The institute provides unique opportunities for high-level research and training for the next generation of SGM scholars. The Institute utilizes innovative modalities to disseminate knowledge widely to the SGM community, the public at large, scholars, service providers, educators, and policymakers.

Lauren Beach, JD/PHD, (she/her) is a postdoctoral research fellow at ISGMH in the research group of Dr. Gregory Phillips, II. Scientifically, Lauren investigates how stigma affects chronic disease management and health outcomes in LGBTI populations. As an alumna of the Joint Degree Program in Law, Science & Technology, she received her JD specialized in Health Law & Bioethics from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2012 and her PhD in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology & Genetics from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2014. For her PhD dissertation research in the lab of Dr. Louis Mansky, she studied the molecular mechanism of action of how ribonucleotide reductase inhibitors inhibit HIV-1 and HIV-2 replication. She received a BA in Social Relations and Policy and a BS in Microbiology from Michigan State University in 2007. Prior to joining Northwestern, Lauren served as a postdoctoral research fellow in the research group of Dr. Kerri Cavanaugh, as well as the Director of LGBTI Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. From 2014-2015, she was an HIVCorps Public Health Fellow at the Center for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ), in Lusaka, Zambia. Lauren is a member of the Minnesota bar and a founding member of the Bisexual Research Collective on Health (BiRCH). At the invitation of the Obama administration, she has spoken at the White House to present recommendations for improving bisexual health outcomes and bisexual data collection methods. She has served in both university and community bisexual community engagement and health policy advocacy efforts since 2008. When not in the office, Lauren enjoys spending time with her 100 pound St. Bernard mix dog, Danny, playing piano, and vegan cooking.
