Values

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for LGBQ-identified patients?

It is a teaching clinic, and I am starting a shift geared towards the LGBTQ population.

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for trans- and genderqueer-identified patients?

See above.

Please describe the ways in which you are involved in LGBTQ community outside of your practice (ex: Do you attend conferences on working with LGBTQ clients? Are you involved in local organizations that serve these communities? etc).

Involved with the Ingersoll consult and plan to attend meetings. Also raising awareness at Bastyr University.

What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?

Bastyr Center for Natural Health (BCNH) is a teaching clinic and the LGBTQ focused shift will be on Tuesday evenings from 5-9pm from April-August 2016. This is a pilot program to see how this shift fits into the clinic and if there is sufficient interest to maintain it. I am a new doctor, and as such, I am not yet credentialed with all of the insurance companies that are listed as being accepted at BCNH.
