LGBTQ Health, Diversity & Inclusion

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) community faces many health challenges, including HIV prevention, Mpox vaccination, gender surgery issues, a higher likelihood of abuse and discrimination, and more. Increase your knowledge, understanding and awareness of LGBTQ-specific issues to help better care for your patients. Plus, earn CME credits.

Members of the SGM (sexual & gender minority) community might face difficulties while seeking health care, and at times health outcomes for these patients do not reach the same levels of their straight and cisgender peers.

This curated CME course will provide an overview of the spectrum of sexual orientation and gender identities. Learn about health disparities across sexual/gender minority communities, HIV prevention, the Mpox vaccine, medical and surgical care for the transgender community, and more.
