What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for trans- and genderqueer-identified patients?
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).
I have attended GLMA conferences. I have given lectures on LGBT cultural competencies to the staff at 3 clinics in our network. I have given lectures to the Family Medicine Residency and Nurse Practitioner Residency on LGBT Health Care and PrEP prescribing. I gave a lecture to all the physicians in our network on PrEP prescribing. I participated as a panelist in the National Latino AIDS Awareness Day forum. We are in the early planning stages of including a segment on Latino LGBT Health at the Latino Health Forum this year.
What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?
"We are a community health center that serves mostly patients who are underinsured or uninsured on a sliding scale. Our patients are mostly Spanish-speaking, but we serve a variety of cultures and languages. Our clinic organization does a lot of advocacy for the health of the Latino community. Our current medical history intake form includes gender identity. It is currently being revised to include pronoun and preferred name based on guidelines provided by National LGBT Health Education Center. I am championing the cause of making our clinic more LGBT-friendly for patients and employees. We have made progress but have so much more work to do!" Most private insurances (except Group Health).
