Event description

Description

LGBTQIA individuals experience poor outcomes in healthcare, education, the criminal justice system and other institutions. These disparities are a result of limited availability of services and staff that are affirming, culturally competent and free of discrimination.

This innovative forum will host a diverse panel of specialists who will educate attendees about disparities faced by the LGBTQIA community and how to better serve this population.
