Addressing Health Disparities: Clinical Insights on Race and Social Justice

In the context of the increased attention in the lay and medical press to structural racism in the aftermath of the recent high-profile deaths of African-Americans at the hands of the criminal justice system, this web series will examine the intersections of race and ethnicity, racism, sexual orientation, social justice and health to better understand the myriad ways these important factors lead to health care disparities in our communities.

Health Inequities and Social Justice for Sexual and Gender Minorities

Wednesday, October 19, 2022, from 1-2 PM EST

The LGBTQ+ population is disproportionately affected by health inequities, with lower rates of health insurance coverage, higher rates of socioeconomic factors predisposing to poor health, and lower access to and utilization of health services. These inequities are magnified in LGBTQ+ individuals that also belong to other minoritized groups, such as certain racial, ethnic and linguistic groups. In this webinar, we will review how structural and interpersonal discrimination affects LGBTQ+ populations across a range of health outcomes and discuss approaches to ensuring more equitable care for this population.
