Perspectives in Primary Care

LGBTQ Health 101: Terminology

February 27, 5:30-7:00pm
TMEC Amphitheater, Tosteson Medical Education Center – 260 Longwood Avenue
Madina Agénor, ScD, MPH, Sand Chang, PhD, and Jessica Halem, MBA
The session will provide guidance on some common language, but focus on humility and an acknowledgement that language and identification is variable across a number of factors. We will use this opportunity to coach clinicians to stop making assumptions, to become comfortable with not knowing everything, and to invite patients to explain their identity and lives in more detail to better understand them and pursue holistic relationships.

TMEC Amphitheater, Tosteson Medical Education Center – 260 Longwood Avenue
Gary Bailey, DHL, MSW, ACSW, Jennifer Potter, MD, and Sari L. Reisner, ScD
This session will explore the health inequities faced by the LGBTQ community, highlighting the role of adverse childhood experiences as well as stigma and discrimination and using an intersectional lens. We will discuss the implications of these inequities in clinical care, as well as innovations in clinical care (e.g. harm reduction, trauma- informed care case examples, and informed consent).
