The St. Louis Business Journal has recognized Anthony T. Dao, MD, an instructor in the Division of Hospital Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, with a Business of Pride Award. The honor celebrates “LGBTQIA+ leaders and allies who are successful in their careers, active in their communities, and are advocates for inclusion and equality.”

Dao is the director of OUTmed, a LGBTQ+ advocacy group sponsored by the Department of Medicine. Additionally, he is the faculty adviser for the medical student group LGBTQ+, which has more than 20 active members. The Business Journal praised Dao for continuing “to champion LGBTQIA+ education, recruitment efforts, community engagement and mentorship.”
