CoE-IHS Office Hour: Integrated Care and Addressing the Needs of Black and African American LGBTQ+ Youth
Discrimination and stigma can make it challenging for Black and African American LGBTQ+ youth to access whole person care that supports positive physical and mental health outcomes. Integrated care, which takes a holistic approach to health care, is critical and requires collaborative effort between individuals, their loved ones, healthcare providers, community leaders and policymakers.
Addressing the needs of Black and African American LGBTQ+ youth in integrated care is essential to ensure that all individuals have access to high-quality health care that meets their unique needs.
Join us for an office hour session on Tuesday, June 20, 2-3 p.m. ET, for a candid discussion on the experiences, challenges and opportunities in providing equitable integrated care to Black and African American LGBTQ+ youth. You’ll hear from experts in the field about the latest research, strategies and resources available to support these communities in integrated care.
By providing safe, inclusive and culturally responsive care that is sensitive to the whole person needs of Black and African American LGBTQ+ youth, health care providers can address systemic inequities that negatively impact the health and wellbeing of these communities.
