On June 6th, four of Jersey Shore PFLAGers were honored to speak at Monmouth Medical Center to their Behavioral Health employees, educating about PFLAG and LGBT issues, especially with regards to patient care. Alieu Nyassi, Director of Diversity & Inclusion for the hospital system voiced his dedication to ensuring that policies, procedures, and training will be provided to all MMC staff to ensure that the LGBTQ community feels welcomed and safe when seeking medical services at the hospital.  It was a wonderful opportunity to share our stories and educate healthcare professionals.
