Sponsor: New England AIDS Education Training Center and the National LGBT Health Education Center Speaker: Harvey J. Makadon, MD First presented on April 23, 2013 Archived This session provides an overview of recent and emerging trends in HIV infection and prevalence rates among LGBT populations in New England and nationally. Recent data underscores that the overwhelming majority of new HIV infections are among men who have sex with men and additionally indicates that transgender women are at especially high risk. These trends are discussed in the context of providing high-quality, effective care to LGBT populations, and will include key information on LGBT demographics, terminology, and effective strategies for creating LGBT-inclusive environments. The session also explores the intersections of LGBT health, population health and primary care in patient centered medical homes and other settings.
