Family & Children's Aid has partnered with the Major League Baseball Alumni Association to offer a series of free baseball clinics to children ages 6 to 16.
A dynamic and diverse panel of LGBTQ+ allies, practitioners, and members of the community will untangle and explore the complexities of accessing and providing LGBTQ+ affirming care in a lively and exploratory moderated discussion. With the overarching goal of improving attendees’ awareness of the unique experiences the LGBTQ+ community encounters when seeking out medical or behavioral health care, this panel discussion will incorporate panel members’ firsthand experiences as patients, providers, and activists. While sharply focusing on delivery of LGBTQ+ affirmative care, the panel will address how to effectively build trust and safety with LGBTQ+ clients, improve continued client engagement in treatment, and practically apply knowledge of risk factors and health disparities that LGBTQ+ individuals face. Attendees will deepen their knowledge and understanding of the importance of LGBTQ+ affirmative care, and how to lead with inclusivity.
