We are excited to announce that Dr. Jennifer Potter, Director of LGBT Population Health, Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute, and HMS Professor of Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, has been selected by the Harvard Medical School (HMS) Class of 2020 to receive the Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award.
Every year, HMS graduates recognize faculty and staff for touching their lives and supporting their educations during Class Day. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Class Day has been postponed. However, a pre-recorded, virtual Class Day ceremony will air online on the afternoon of May 28th, during which Dr. Potter will be honored as an award recipient.
Dr. Potter has extensive clinical, medical education, research, and mentoring experience. She has designed and implemented numerous curricula for health professionals, focused on LGBTQIA+ health, women’s health, sexual health, cancer survivorship, and care for people with disabilities.
In addition, she co-edited two seminal textbooks on LGBTQIA+ health (The Fenway Guide to LGBT Health and Trauma, Resilience and Health Promotion in LGBT Patients; What Every Healthcare Provider Should Know), and co-authored an American Association of Medical Colleges’ monograph entitled Implementing Curricular and Institutional Climate Changes to Improve Health Care for Individuals Who are LGBT, Gender Nonconforming, or Born with DSD: A Resource for Medical Educators.
Congratulations on this well deserved honor, Dr. Potter!
