Understanding LGBTQ+

In this webinar we will break down biological sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, pronouns, transgender, demisexual, third gender, and gender expression. While addressing the spectrum we will discuss proper ways of asking questions and how to communicate, i.e. names and pronouns. We will also discuss bias elimination, hurtful terms, how to communicate, and the effects on mental health, including the best ways to cope. Despite the existence of different views, we hope to change negative views and help create a healthier world.

Using Healthy Kids Colorado Survey Results to Equitably Impact Youth Health

The purpose of the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) is to better understand youth health and the protective factors that support Colorado youth in making healthy choices. HKCS results can be used to assess community needs, identify disparities, and guide strategies to equitably impact youth health at the local level. In this panel discussion, we will provide an overview of the HKCS instrument, methodology, and data products available later this summer. We will also highlight how one Colorado community started with their local HKCS results to build connectedness and resilience for youth who identify as LGBTQ+. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in the conversation and share their experiences.
