LGBT Health

Creating a Welcoming Clinical Environment for LGBT Patients

  • Developed a welcoming clinical environment for LGBT patients at NCHC.
  • Revised non-discrimination policies and new patient intake forms.
  • Incorporated LGBT health learning modules into yearly mandatories.
  • Added LGBT inclusive material into all waiting and exam rooms.

The  project served as a model for community health centers that want to provide their LGBT communities with patient centered care that is affordable, compassionate and accessible. For more information, please view a presentation of the project here.
