Population Health Spotlight Speaker Series - Dr. Asa Radix

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

2:00 PM-3:30 PM

This year’s Population Health Spotlight will discuss a range of pressing issues related to LGBTQ+ health and discuss implications for policies and action.

Many structural and systemic factors impact the health of LGBTQ+ people, creating health related challenges and disparities. Recent legislative actions across the United States have further amplified these impacts and have highlighted the need to address LGBTQ+ health as a core component of population health and health equity.

Speaker: Dr. Asa Radix, Senior Director of Research and Education, Callen-Lorde Community Health Center

Talk title: "Advancing Health Equity for Trans and Gender Diverse Individuals through Inclusive Clinical Practice Guidelines"
