For Healthcare Providers

Studies show that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and (LGBT) populations, in addition to having the same basic health needs as the general population, experience health disparities and barriers related to sexual orientation and/or gender identity or expression. Many avoid or delay care or receive inappropriate or inferior care because of perceived or real homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and discrimination by health care providers and institutions. (GLMA Guidelines for care of LGBT patients). Many transgender people also cannot access care easily due to unfair exclusions in health insurance.


Note to Healthcare Providers:

One of our goals toward cultural competency is to create a comprehensive online directory of Healthcare providers within the institution who have self-identified as openly welcoming lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients and their families, and who take measures to assure they are providing culturally competent care in a respectful and sensitive setting.

If you are interested in more information regarding this provider list, please contact us.
