IPE Immersion Day Fall 2022 Caring for the LGBTQ Community

Immersion Day Fall 2022On August 26th, 2022, 161 students from 7 health careers programs participated in an interprofessional education event to learn more about caring for patients in the LGBTQ community. The speaker, Aster Gilbert, joined us from the Center on Halstead in Chicago to provide education on appropriate terminology, allyship, providing gender affirming care, and frequent barriers to accessing care and support. Following the event, students reported feeling more equipped to utilize inclusive language when providing care to patients, using gender-neutral and gender-specific pronouns, and understanding the importance of inclusivity when providing equitable care.
