When & Where
The Network for LGBT Health Equity
The Network for LGBT Health Equity is a community-driven network of advocates and professionals looking to enhance LGBT health by eliminating tobacco use, and other health disparities within our communities. We are one of six CDC-funded tobacco disparity networks and a project of The Fenway Institute in Boston. We advance these issues primarily by linking people and information to advocate for policy change. We maintain a virtual forum of LGBT tobacco and wellness professionals, encouraging them to share lessons and jointly monitor gaps in the arena. We gather and maintain a promising practice clearinghouse through our website. We directly train state health departments or other policymakers in LGBT cultural competency and forge bridges between them and local LGBT health specialists. We actively monitor national and state health policymakers and urge community action when there is an opportunity to enhance LGBT wellness.
