Advancing Health Equity for Queer Youth and Young Adults: From Anecdote to Action

January 17, 2021 at 10:20:00 AM · Pacific Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

In this workshop, we will highlight health disparities specific to youth and young adults from the LGBTQ+ community (with an emphasis on young gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (YMSM) and trangender youth assigned male at birth (AMAB)) utilizing both personal narrative as well as public health data. Looking at multiple levels of influence on behavior from the intrapersonal, interpersonal, and community level, we will collectively identify actionable items to support this heavily marginalized yet resilient community.

UCLA Pilipinos for Community Health  webinar platform hosts Advancing Health Equity for Queer Youth and Young Adults: From Anecdote to Action
Established in 1989, Pilipinos for Community Health (PCH) at UCLA has constantly advanced its efforts to educate and provide health services to the socio-economically disadvantaged community of the Greater Los Angeles area. While addressing health issues that are prominent in the Pilipino community, we also acknowledge that these health problems are common in many other underserved communities, and so we choose to serve every recipient, regardless of nationality. With the health field as its outlet for service, PCH serves various groups at the university, local, and international levels. Through its three main components of (1) Community Outreach, (2) Preventive Health, and (3) Pre-Health Advising and Mentorship, PCH aims to help the community make wise health decisions and strives to provide members with valuable learning experiences.

PCH is a service project under the UCLA Community Service Commission (CSC).
