This year topics will be primarily related to addressing the healthcare needs of the LGBTQIA+ community with updates from local, state, and national guest speakers including topics such as terminology/pronouns, inclusive workforce, policies and advocacy, mental health, transgender community needs, and sexual health. Sessions will also include discussion on health disparities, racial/ethnic factors, social determinants of health, and vulnerable/underserved populations. Course content will be available in-person, via Zoom, and asynchronously including expert lectures and panels, discussion groups, and clinical/community-based case scenarios.
