LGBTQ and Allies affinity group co-leader Bill Krenz honored for efforts

During Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine’s Fall Recognition Celebration on Nov. 6, 2019, Bill Krenz, administrative associate for Community Health in the Department of Nursing and co-leader of the campus LGBTQ and Allies Affinity Resource Network Group, was awarded one of three Steven and Sharon Baron Leadership Awards.

Krenz co-leads monthly meetings and communications for the 250-member group, along with Dr. Katharine “Katie” Dalke, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry, a member of Gov. Tom Wolf’s Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs and director of the College of Medicine’s Office for Culturally Responsive Health Care Education.

Krenz and Dalke work closely with the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the College of Medicine’s student PRIDE Group to continue to create a safe space for employees, patients and students.

After receiving the award, both The Central Voice: Central PA’s LGBT News Source and the Pennsylvania Capital-Star featured a profile of Krenz that describes his many efforts for the LGBTQ+ community over the years and why he was nominated for the Baron Award.
