Individuals within the LGBTQ+ community have unique healthcare needs and considerations and addressing that includes knowledge of how best to support them in living healthy, authentic lives. In addition to social workers in medical settings, everyone in the helping professions could benefit from increased understanding around these needs and providing affirming care. As such, the Elk Place Health Spot at Tulane University School of Social Work has coordinated a panel discussion on LGBTQ+ wellbeing, sexual health, and gender affirmation that will engage social workers to better support their clients, organizations, and policy change. This free, virtual event will take place on Thursday, April 27 from 12 to 1:30 pm at the School of Social Work building in downtown New Orleans. The event is open to the public, and registration via Zoom is required: https://tulane.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0sdeGurzgiGdeFe_dTXKTs6_8ljwQLU5hV.
An application has been made to offer continuing education credit for social workers.
