Learning Resources — Introduction to LGBTQIA+ Health
The 2022 monkeypox (MPX) outbreak disproportionately affects gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM). Although severe illness from MPX has been rare, many affected individuals are experiencing a painful illness that takes weeks to resolve, and they may face stigma related to the illness and/or their sexual orientation. In this interactive webinar, clinicians will learn the latest information about MPX epidemiology, clinical manifestations, prevention, supportive care, and treatment.
Reentry, Referrals, and Responsive Care: How Health Care Centers Can Support Justice-Involved LGBTQIA+ Patients
The goal of this panel webinar is to increase the capacity of health centers to meet the health care and support needs of LGBTQIA+ patients who have experienced incarceration or who are justice-involved. Participants will learn from an expert panel about how to improve screening, support, and referral services as well as explore opportunities and promising practices in developing community-based partnerships for reentry support.
This webinar will increase the capacity of health centers to understand the unique mental and physical health needs of LGBTQIA+ veterans. An overview of how VHA addresses these needs and how to connect with what is offered for health center providers and veterans will be provided.
