Addressing LGBTQ Health Risk and Resilience in the Southeast, May 10
Category : News/Events
This is a live webinar scheduled for May 10, 2022 from 12 – 1:30 pm ET.
Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) face a disproportionate number of structural, programmatic, and individual-level barriers to address their health and wellbeing. LGBTQ communities also have developed incredible resilience and coping mechanisms in response to daily experiences with stigma and discrimination. In this webinar, Dr. Sarah MacCarthy, the first appointed holder of the Magic City LGBTQ Health Studies Endowed Professorship at the UAB School of Public Health, will discuss different terms and concepts related to LGBTQ health, with attention to the ways in which the rapidly changing landscape impacts research and practice. She will also help detail the growing size of LGBTQ communities across the country. Dr. MacCarthy will describe LGBTQ health inequities nationally and highlight the ways in which unique barriers and facilitators impact the Southeast. Dr. MacCarthy will also identify resources that health departments can use to find evidence-based practices to serve this population.
By the end of this webinar you will be able to:
- Define key terms that relate to LGBTQ communities
- Describe the health inequities experienced across and within LGBTQ communities
- Describe some of the root causes of health inequities impacting the LGBTQ community
- Identify resources for evidence-based practices to better serve the public health needs of LGBTQ people
