HISTORIC FLAG RAISING @ New Bridge Medical Center

New Bridge Medical Center is rolling out a new commitment to excel in LGBTQ Cultural Competency by raising the Pride Flag at 12 Noon this Friday, June 15th.  The event filled day is only an introduction to its residents, clients, staff, and entire community that they take this endeavor seriously beyond speeches, tie dyed shirts, rainbow bagels and other give-ways.

New Bridge wants to create an ongoing engagement with the LGBTQ community in order that disparity is torn down and  that they may provide quality healthcare and services to all in a manner that is welcoming and competent toward all people.
THIS IS GREATLY NEEDED IN NORTHERN NJ… Please take some time during your lunch hour to show support for this progressive move forward!
