Health Equity: LGBTQ Fall 2018



Primary Competency

Cultural Competency Skills

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.

Course Preview

What to expect as a participant:

A principle aim of this learning experience is to maximize participants’ engagement with the instructional materials, but also with one another. During this course, participants will watch/do approximately 1 hour of "on your own" work each week, followed by a 1 hour, facilitated discussion with a cohort of peers, held via bidirectional video.

This format offers a rich learning experience during which you'll interact with peers and subject matter experts. All of the sessions are required and participants must join each session via video (using a computer with a webcam; a laptop; tablet; or smartphone).

Don't worry! We have plenty of tech support and are happy to help you get set up for a great learning experience.
