Queer Inclusive Programming: An Ally's Guide to Prevention

10:00 AM

Now, let’s get straight to the point… we’re here, we’re queer and we’re talking about all things LGBTQ+ health. Join two queer prevention specialists as they guide you through the ins-and-outs of community prevention programming with and for the LGBTQ+ community. From an overview of inclusive surveying to understanding the risk and protective factors of this community, you will leave with a play book of what you can do in your community to address health disparities.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

1) Understand the risk/protective factors within the LGBTQ+ community

2) Serve as an ally to LGBTQ+ individuals

3) Successfully address LGBTQ+ community in their programming
