Description: According to the UCLA Williams Institute, approximately 5.3% of Californians identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender and 24% have children. Research shows that LGBTQIA+ individuals experience worse health outcomes compared to heterosexual individuals. It is essential for providers to understand the needs and experiences of LGBTQIA+ communities in order to provide inclusive care that eliminates barriers and promotes equitable health outcomes. During this webinar, participants will gain:

• An understanding of LGBTQIA+ language and terminology.

• An understanding of the needs and experiences faced by LGBTQIA+ youth and adults.

• Practical tips for engaging with youth and adults who may identify as LGBTQIA+
