Pride Week 5: Showing You Care

LGBTQ+, lgbtq+ health
The resources shared via these posts for Pride Month touch upon only a small portion of the health information needs and concerns of LGBTQIA+ people and the providers who care for them. A lack of research exists in these populations in part because LGBTQIA+ persons might not be out to their health care providers for fear of stigma and discrimination or perhaps not seek medical care at all. Some providers may not have proper training in the health needs of Sexual and Gender Minorities (SGM).
This final Pride Month post offers a few resources to improve the health, safety, and wellness of members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Of particular note is the National Institutes of Health Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion site which supports not only members of the LGBTQIA+ community but other underrepresented groups as well. Happy Pride!
