Welcome Healthcare Providers
Dear Healthcare Providers,
We would first like to start off by saying thank you for all that you do. Your work does not go unappreciated.
As a healthcare provider, serving patients from a variety of different backgrounds is part of your every day. However, it is not likely that you will share the same experiences as every patient you serve. That is where cultural competency becomes one of your biggest assets. Learning about patient backgrounds can help meet individualized needs. This page provides cultural competency resources for those interested in learning more about the LGBTQ+ community. We hope these resources will help you serve your current and future LGBTQ+ patients.
