I AM A LOOKING TO GO

Lexus Dickson

LGBT Advocacy Coordinator

Lexi is a third-year medical student at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia. In 2018, she graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and a minor in English. After witnessing LGBTQ+ people, women, and people of color in her community suffer from inaccessible and unaffirming care, Lexi was driven to become a physician that would respect and advocate for all patients. In her position as AMSA’s Women’s Advocacy Coordinator, she hopes to ameliorate gaps in medical schools’ sexual and reproductive health curricula, and advocate for legislation that will protect and extend access to medical services. She also wishes to encourage and continue the inclusion of sexual and gender minority experiences and the reproductive justice framework within AMSA’s discussions of reproductive, sexual, and women’s health. In addition to this role, she also serves as the Assistant Director for Science Communication and Narrative Medicine for the Medical Student Pride Alliance.
