Fall 2021 Conversations: Global LGBTQ+ Health Equity

Wednesday, October 27th, 3-5pm | Virtual (Zoom)

Proudly co-sponsored by Aya Healthcare

Barriers and stigmas faced by the LGBTQ+ community to access health services are a global concern. Research suggests that LGBTQ+ individuals face health disparities linked to societal stigma, discrimination, and denial of their civil and human rights. Discrimination against LGBTQ+ persons has been associated with high rates of psychiatric disorders, substance abuse, and suicide. Experiences of violence and victimization are frequent for LGBT individuals, and have long-lasting effects on the individual and the community. How can we improve the determinants of health that threaten the welfare of LGBTQ+ individuals in our communities and across the globe? Join us for a discussion as we explore these inequities and how we can advance LGBTQ+ health and well-being.
