LGBTQIA+ Health Resources Webinar Series

Aug 11, 2020


Part 1: Informing Nursing Practice to Deliver Effective Healthcare to Sexual and Gender Minority Populations 

The session will describe the health disparities evidenced in sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations and address drivers of these disparities using a biopsychosocial framing. The experiences of SGM individuals with healthcare will also be examined. Concrete approaches for addressing the shortcomings within the healthcare system to fully address the wellbeing of SGM individuals will be provided. Examples and strategies for working with members of the population will be drawn from my own research and those of other scholars.

Presented by: 

  • Perry N. Halkitis, PhD, MS, MPH Dean and Professor of Biostatistics and Urban-Global Public Health, Rutgers School of Public Health Director, Center for Health, Identity, Behavior & Prevention Studies (CHIBPS) Founding Editor in Chief, Annals of LGBTQ Public and Population Health
Part 2: Providing Affirming Nursing Care for Black LGBTQ Community Members 

Wednesday, October 14, 2020, 3:00 pm ET

This workshop will include three components aimed at equipping nurses to provide more affirming care for Black LGBTQ patients: educational, discussion, and application. Specifically, the workshop will start with an overview of research about health risk and resilience factors among Black LGBTQ people. It will then move to a discussion of nurses’ experiences with Black LGBTQ people and how they have addressed risk and resilience in their clinical care with them. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to brainstorm concrete ways to use resilience to positively impact the patient-provider relationship and treatment/prevention outcomes. All participants will be provided with handouts of the information presented in the workshop and given the opportunity to ask questions.

Presented by: 

  • Dr. Jonathan Lassiter, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Rowan University
