Does anyone know where to purchase the rainbow caduceus lapel pins? (See below for pic)

Seems like this would be a good place but they're out of stock :confused:

I would strongly consider not wearing any pin that involves sexuality or religion. Most importantly it might alienate patients (we take care of bigoted people unfortunately) but also may be seen as unprofessional.

I would argue otherwise. Almost all healthcare employees, including medical students, interns and attendings, at Mass General Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital wear rainbow stickers on their badges. Other people can pitch in for hospitals in other parts of the US. I believe they provide a sense of security for LGBTQ-patients. Although, that sense of security might be false if the person wearing the sticker/pin does not have any competency on issues facing LGBTQ people or treat them as if they just saw an alien...

Anyways, I am for wearing pins. Those pins do not show the sexual orientation or gender identity of the person wearing it, but signfy a welcoming space for LGBTQ people.
