Spotlight on NLM Resources – Wednesday, July 25, 2012, 1:00 -Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Resources -Health disparities in the LGBT community are significant. There is a high prevalence of suicide and homelessness among LGBT youth; lesbians and bisexual females are less likely to be screened for cancer; elderly LGBT individuals can be isolated and lack access to social services creating barriers to health care; LGBT populations have the highest rate of tobacco, alcohol and other drug use.
In this Spotlight! session, presented by Dana Abbey, Colorado/Health Information Literacy Coordinator, learn about important health issues for the LGBT community; understand specific health concerns for LGBT populations; and know about authoritative, culturally competent health information resources.

Taking the one-hour class and completing the exercises and class evaluation makes you eligible to receive 1 Medical Library Association Continuing Education credit.
