Eliminating health disparities and improving health among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) individuals is imperative to achieving health equity. This introductory online course is about understanding the issues - we will examine ourselves and work to better understand the experience of those in the LGBTQ community.This six-week online learning experience approaches the issue of LGBTQ health from multiple perspectives. It will provide information and an opportunity for personal reflection, and ends with an introduction to action steps public health and health care can take to improve health outcomes for LGBTQ individuals.
