Social Determinants of Health and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health
To be more effective, public health, health care, and prevention practitioners must understand the cultural context of their unique community, and possess the skills and desire to work in those contexts. Cultural competence, the ability of an individual or organization to interact effectively with people of different cultures and backgrounds to produce positive change, is a key component to achieving the Healthy People 2020 goal of reducing health disparities and achieving health equity.
This webinar will highlight the importance of social determinants of health and cultural competence in working with LGBT and diverse populations to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity. The presenters will also highlight the work of the Los Angeles LGBT Center in providing culturally competent care to the LGBT community.
