What can I expect?
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual, asexual, and two spirit (LGBTQIA2S+) people often do not seek health care because of barriers and discrimination.
Join us in June to learn from a diverse group of presenters about health care and health challenges in our LGBTQIA2S+ communities and engage in Q&A sessions.
The presenters, who all identify as LGBTQIA2S+, are working to improve health within mainstream health care and in their cultural communities. You will also hear from voices often under-represented in health care.
>> Scroll down to learn about the presenters and their topics.
Participants will be able to:
identify health issues & challenges in our LGBTQIA2S+ communities.
explore the impact of racism on LGBTQIA2S+ health.
describe culturally specific issues in our LGBTQIA2S+ communities.
explore community resources to support LGBTQIA2S+ patients.
UPDATE: The event will be held completely online via Google Meet. Anyone who is registered will receive a reminder email one day before the event with the link and info to join the event on Google Meet.
You'll learn from these wonderful humans.
