It is important to us that all voices are heard. Somerset County has launched an LGBTQ+ advisory board with the mission of raising public awareness and advocating for LGBTQ+ residents by promoting justice and equality, ending oppression and inequities while fostering mutual respect among residents and its leaders.
Additionally, the Babs Siperstein PROUD Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset was the first in New Jersey to offer specialized primary care services for the LGBTQ+ community, including hormone therapy and monitoring, HIV care, health education, counseling and support groups.
