Project Evaluation for Lyon-Martin Health Clinic
Location(s): United States
Lyon-Martin Health Services provides excellent health care to women, lesbians and transgender people in a safe and compassionate environment, with sensitivity to sexual orientation and gender identity; all services are regardless of ability to pay.
Lyon-Martin Health Services is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Founded in 1979, by a group of medical providers and health activists as a clinic for lesbians who lacked access to nonjudgmental, affordable health care, the clinic soon became a model for culturally sensitive community-based health care. The clinic was named after Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, feminists and well-known LGBTQ civil rights activists.
Today, Lyon-Martin provides primary and preventive healthcare, mental health services and HIV services to all women, including low-income and uninsured, and transgender people.
