Addressing a Neglected Healthcare Disparity - Assessing and Improving Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender-Related Medical Curriculum

Description

To address the historic neglect of medical education on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT)-focused health topics, a workshop was developed for medical students, residents and physicians. This poster describes the development of the workshop, which collects data on prior LGBT health education and address educational needs by providing a unique format to relay information.
