LGBTQ and HIV Care in Partnership:

Our Clinic

All too often doctors and clinics are not comfortable discussing same-sex relationships, LGBTQ sexual wellness, and HIV specialty health care needs. We believe that the LGBTQ and HIV communities in Hampton Roads deserve health care that is designed for them.

That’s why we’ve partnered with CAN Community Health to open a clinic in Norfolk, giving our communities the care and dignity they deserve in their health and wellness.
