Farmworker Justice and the National LGBT Health Education Center are jointly presenting a new webinar on rural Latino LGBT health, with a focus on interventions that promote HIV prevention in LGBT communities.  Scott Rhodes, PhD, MPH, of Wake Forest School of Medicine, will discuss a promising new community-based participatory research project that aims to prevent new HIV and STI infections through building and supporting positive social networks and increasing community capacity among Latino gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender people.  Next, Anna Rick of California Legal Rural Assistance will describe access to care issues for rural Latino MSM in California, and will discuss ways in which her organization works with parents of Latino LGBTQ youth (a population at higher risk for HIV) to engage them in supporting behaviors.  Free CME/CEU credit will be offered.
