It is a great privilege as an LGBT advocate to be accepted by the National LGBTQ Task Force for our proposal on ‘Queering Health care in the Heartland – A Roadmap for Creating LGBT Welcoming Health Spaces in Missouri’ during the 2016 Creating Change conference. Our presentation was 1 of 945 proposals vying for a time slot in the Creating Change schedule. During the conference presentation I’ll be joined by Eugene Potchen-Webb and Katie Keith, who continue to be instrumental in making LGBT health a reality in Missouri.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide attendees with a roadmap for bridging the gap found in LGBT health disparities in their local community by creating LGBT welcoming spaces – Missouri style. Participants will gain first-hand knowledge on the successful collaborative model of the Missouri LGBT Health policy project, while giving a snapshot of LGBT health in Missouri. Folks will walk away with practical steps that have been successful in Missouri to create an environment of positive change in health for the LGBT community.
The workshop will be featured on Saturday, January 23rd from 10:45am–12:15 pm. Find out more about the Creating Change conference by clicking. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Chicago!
