How to Talk to Your Healthcare Provider
Presented by Vanessa Pomarico, EdD
It is a well documented fact that the majority of healthcare providers are not educated on the specific needs of the LGBTQIA+ population. As a result, few are prepared to address the specific needs of each of these populations under the LGBTQIA+ acronym. Office visits with health care providers are often not long enough in which to address the majority of concerns patients have so patients leave the office feeling that their voice and concerns have not been heard. In this session, the attendees will learn how to get the most out of their visits to their healthcare provider and ask the appropriate questions that will help them to meet their needs without having to educate the provider while being the patient.
