We Are The National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center
We provide educational programs, resources, and consultation to health care organizations with the goal of optimizing quality, cost-effective health care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and all sexual and gender minority (LGBTQIA+) people.
At the intersection of LGBTQIA+ identities and disability status, patients face increased health disparities and increased barriers to care. This webinar will focus on the unique needs of disabled, mad, chronically ill, and neuro divergent LGBTQIA2S+ patients, helping health care providers and centers to provide support for overcoming challenges in access to care, including how to provide culturally responsive care, and how to manage and advocate for affirming and accessible referrals when additional services are needed.
This panel-style presentation will feature a diverse group of providers in mental health, nursing, and medicine with expertise in LGBTQIA+ health, providing their unique perspectives on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected patient care for LGBTQIA+ people. Participants will learn strategies to support LGBTQIA+ patients accessing healthcare and how to provide affirming treatment and referrals to address the lasting mental health effects of COVID-19, including increased levels of anxiety, substance use, and depression triggered by social isolation, bereavement, fear, or loss of income.
This National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center and the National Center for Equitable Care for Elders (NCECE) webinar will examine the relationship between body image, perception, and healthy movement for overall health and diabetes prevention, particularly for older LGBTQIA+ adults. Expert panelists will present approaches for supporting LGBTQIA+ patients with their health goals as they age, provide strategies for developing LGBTQIA+ and body-affirming and inclusive environments for older adults, and share best practices for connecting older LGBTQIA+ patients to appropriate and affirming services aimed at improving health outcomes.
This webinar is designed to help health centers understand the unique needs of LGBTQIA+ people when seeking reproductive health care. Participants will explore the unique barriers to reproductive health care for LGBTQIA+ people and discover promising practices for providing affirming pre-conception counseling and OBGYN and reproductive health care, including strategies for health navigation, and considerations for LGBTQIA+ patients who seek to raise children.
