Dr. Carl Streed Jr. recently received the AMA Foundation Excellence in Medicine Leadership Award. Streed has advocated for the inclusion of LGBT health issues in the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health curricula and successfully worked for transgender equity in health insurance coverage.

Nationally, Streed has served as the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) LGBT Policy Coordinator and Liaison, advised the American Medical Association Board of Trustees as a member of the Advisory Committee on GLBT Issues, and served on a board of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association.

“The AMA Foundation Excellence in Medicine Award validates much of the work I and many others have been doing to address LGBT disparities in health care, from medical school training to insurance coverage,” Streed told the Blade.
