LGBT people face multiple barriers to accessing inclusive and affirming care. Health centers and other health care organizations are well-positioned to provide environments that are welcoming to the LGBT people in their communities, and many are seeking guidance in how to do so. In this webinar, Dr. Harvey Makadon, Director of the Division of Education and Training at The Fenway Institute, will lead participants through ten key practices for creating LGBT-inclusive and affirming in health care organizations. Participants will learn approaches ranging from shaping policies and processes, to collecting data, to engaging the community.
