  • “Blue Cross Complete of Michigan was pleased to host Affirmations and their Program Services Director Liliana Reyes at our Southfield office. Reyes presented our staff with a two-part training about the LGBTQ population, including health care issues and disparities within the LGBTQ community. Reyes’ expertise and knowledge captured our associates' attention and her openness to answering questions helped everyone learn. As a Medicaid health plan, we strive to be a culturally competent organization when engaging with our members and the community and having these type of trainings and partnerships with an outstanding organization like Affirmations, helps to do so.”
