Hello all, on September 10th, 2014, from 2-3pm EST, I’ll be giving a FREE webinar: Understanding Bisexuality: Challenging Stigma, Reducing Disparities, and Caring for Patients” that is hosted by the National LGBT Health Education Center, The Fenway Institute, Fenway Health. For those for whom this matters, CME/CEU credits are available. This presentation will be targeted toward health providers, but all are welcome.
Bisexual people face a number of health-care related disparities, including lower access to health insurance, higher rates of certain types of cancer, and higher prevalence of intimate partner violence. This webinar, featuring Robyn Ochs, Ed.M, a national speaker and teacher, and the editor of the 42-country anthology, Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World and the Bi Women Quarterly, will explore what it means to be bisexual, and will help providers best prepare to meet the needs of their bisexual patients. She will highlight disparities faced by bisexual people, and challenge negative messages and stigma that surround the bisexual community. Join us for this engaging and thought-provoking session!
