“Stairway to the Stars was truly a magical and history making night, raising major philanthropic support to create a healthy Orange County for all,” said Phil Yaeger, executive director, Radiant Health Centers. The LGBTQ+ community faces severe discrimination in healthcare and also makes up 80 percent of Radiant Health Centers’ current client base. Expanding into full medical services will provide the  LGBTQ+ community of Orange County a haven for health and wellness, free of stigma and discrimination.”   

Radiant Health Centers honored the Human Rights Campaign for its groundbreaking work to improve health equity for the LGBTQ+ community. Dr. Vincent Pompei, director of the Youth Well-Being Project at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, was on hand to accept the award on behalf of President Chad Griffin.
