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.”
