LGBT Healthcare Cultural Competence Webinars Offered

The Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA), in conjunction with Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is offering what appears to be a free, 4-part series of webinars on the health care needs of LGBT people.

The sign-up page for the first webinar, to be held Tuesday, June 19, 2012, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. EST, says of the series:  “The webinar series is an education program open to anyone interested in learning about the healthcare needs of LGBT people. This cultural competence four-part series will explore the health concerns and healthcare of LGBT people. We will review the social determinants that influence how LGBT people seek and receive care and the impact those influences have on health. We will virtually follow the experience of LGBT people and those of us who care for them to better understand how we can create healthcare environments that are welcoming and can help minimize the existing disparities experienced by this population. We will delve into the clinical concerns specific to LGBT persons- both in terms of physical health and mental health- so we can better understand how to create comprehensive systems of care that support positive outcomes and experiences for LGBT people and result in high quality healthcare.”  To sign up, go to:  http://www.glma.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.viewPage&pageId=1025&grandparentID=534&parentID=940&nodeID=1
