TimelyCare's Virtual Session
Cultivating Allyship: Fostering Inclusive Healthcare for LGBTQ+ College Students
Saturday, April 15, 10:15 -11:15 a.m. CST
This panel presentation explores the critical role of allyship in promoting inclusive healthcare environments for LGBTQ+ college students. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by this student population, the discussion will emphasize the importance of creating safe and supportive spaces for accessing healthcare services. Our panel of healthcare professionals will share insights on strategies to develop allyship within healthcare institutions, with a focus on training, policy implementation, and community engagement. The session will also highlight the significance of intersectional approaches in addressing the diverse experiences of LGBTQ+ college students. By fostering a culture of empathy and understanding, we can contribute to better healthcare outcomes and overall well-being for LGBTQ+ students in higher education.
Living in a (post-)COVID world, we acknowledge that many people are feeling isolated, afraid, and angry with the crises that surround us. It can be easy to get sucked into the abyss of all the problems and issues that our communities face. This year’s Summit is an opportunity to focus on the good that we can bring about through advocacy, allyship, and action in the places we live and work. The Summit brings together students, faculty, staff, and community members in a conscious, interprofessional effort to commit to one another, build up the LGBTQIA & Allies community, and “Light the way!”
