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 seven-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.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.
THIS COURSE WILL TAKE 7 WEEKS TO COMPLETE
