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

Sep 16, 2020  12:48 AM  ET

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 Dr. Perry N. Halkitis' 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
