LGBTQ+ Health Symposium Agenda
9:00am – Opening Symposium Remarks by Bobby Smith

Session 1
9:05 – Healthcare for LGBTQ+ Patients 
Summary: This virtual educational session will provide an introduction to the transgender community, including how to provide culturally-sensitive care and use appropriate vocabulary to improve the patient-provider relationship and decrease healthcare disparities. Physicians and healthcare professionals will learn about the barriers members of the transgender community face when accessing healthcare, as well as strategies to recognize and decrease barriers to care.
Presented by: Michael L. Pirics M.D.

Session 2

10:00am—Introductions

10:05am – Enhancing LBGTQ+ Patient Care: Improving Gender Communication & Health Disparities

10:35am- Understanding Gender Communication & Health Disparities in the LGBTQ+ Population


Summary: Access to culturally competent healthcare providers is a challenge for the LGBTQ+ community and an increase of fundamental knowledge is required. Appropriate use of gender terminology as well as effective and sensitive communication strategies are an easy starting point to ensure LGBTQ+ patients feel comfortable discussing their healthcare needs. Open communication is essential as LGBTQ+ patients suffer from a disproportionate risk of various healthcare conditions which could be positively impacted by enhanced awareness within the medical community. This presentation will navigate through the appropriate use of gender terminology, evaluate effective communication strategies when discussing healthcare needs, and dive into the impact of health outcome disparities in LGBTQ+ patients.

Presented by: Michael Sirimaturos & Ian Dunne
