April 12 from 5:00-6:50pm

This training is intended to give you an introduction to providing care to patients who identify as LGBTQ+. The LGBTQ+ community is made up of many different people, but what unites them as a community is their similar social adversities, challenges with stigma and decimation, and struggle to get complete and high-quality healthcare. We believe that by becoming a "Visible Healthcare Ally" you can play a role in improving LGBTQ+ healthcare.
