LGBT Health Resources for Health Care Providers from the American Medical Student Association
It’s LGBT Health Week at work, which consists of lectures on the health and issues faced by LGBT persons and an LGBT health fair on Saturday in Nashville. As a result of the timing and previous conversations, I’ve been looking for LGBT health resources to add to our e-resource portal, and thought I’d share here this set of items I found from AMSA.
LGBT National Inclusion Campaign – includes materials for use by educators/presenters on the health of queer people of color and transgender patients.
Transgender Health Resources – provides links to clinical guidelines, patient education materials, and trans health 101 resources.
LGBT Local Projects in a Box – tools for organizers/students/educators on LGBT health 101, being an ally, inclusive terminology/language bias, LGBT primary care, Transgender Day of Awareness, and other issues, with activity suggestions.
LGBT White Coat Cards – extremely basic pocket card references for practicing clinicians on gay, lesbian, and transgender health.
Spotlight: TransMedicine: How will you treat your transgender patients? – from The New Physician, April 2006. Warning: uses problematic term “transgendered.”
