Thursday June 25, 2020 12 p.m.–1 p.m. Eastern time

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to leave its lethal footprint in communities across the country and the world. Many in the LGBTQ community have faced distinct challenges, often resulting from pre-existing health and economic inequities. LGBTQ people of color must deal with unique intersectionality burdens exposed and elevated by the dual pandemics of the virus and racism.

This webinar, presented by ACHE’s LGBTQ Forum, will cover Human Rights Campaign Foundation studies, including “The Impact of COVID-19 On LGBTQ Communities of Color,” and experiences from the pandemic front lines.

In this interactive session, attendees will:

  • Understand the science, data and research on COVID-19’s impact on the LGBTQ community.
  • Recognize the unique COVID-19 challenges on LGBTQ communities of color.
  • Learn successful examples of healthcare organizations’ work in these communities.
  • Identify practical steps they can take to support these communities as members or allies.

This webinar is free and eligible for 1 ACHE Qualified Education credit.
