Treatment for everyone in the LGBT community

AARC’s Health Equity Clinic (HEC) provides a safe space for licensed medical staff to conduct intakes and medical assessments while offering treatment services for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community in San Antonio.

Historically, the LGBT population in the city is one of the most medically underserved populations in South Texas. AARC contracts with LGBT and LGBT-friendly physicians and clinicians who are culturally sensitive and representative of the communities served. In addition to primary medical care, AARC Health Equity Clinic staff offer comprehensive information, referral, PrEP, HIV care and patient navigation services for LGBT patients and consumers.

AARC will utilize its LGBT clinic for health services outreach and education to LGBT organizations and the community throughout San Antonio. AARC Health Equity Clinic services are offered with respect and compassion for the diverse community we represent and serve.
